Lord-Lieutentants Certificate

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What does this mean (I've just tried googling to found out)?

    Is it an award/honour that really indicates good service and conduct. I've been told its a honour just below ?BE.

    Does it allow you to put letters after your name?
  2. It is an award for perservering with the TA, other Reserve Forces or Cadet Forces. Doesn't necessarily mean good conduct or service - normally based on length of service and just keeping out of trouble. A bit like the VRSM but you don't have to wait 10 years.
    Doesn't entitle you to put any letters after your name. You get a nice framed certificate, shake the LL's hand and there's usually a free buffet and booze afterwards (wa hey!)
  3. Normally a soldier from each TA unit, army / navy / crab air / ACF / baby crabs / baby skimmers etc get one each year in our area. Pic in paper if you are lucky. Buffet is thrown in.

    If you get one, well done, undetected crime eh !!
  4. I gather they look a bit like this..
