its a very good gong to have, a lot of people say gongs mean nothing when youre out, having a LS&GC actually shows a possible employer that you are either trustworthy or a damn good bluffer, both highly sought after traits. You may think thats bollox but believe me its true.
Depends on how you would describe worth. A time served medal could also be said to include campaign medals, which also require a qualifying time period but many people would dispute its equivalence with a blue peter badge.
Interesting to hear that no one has asked for a Red Book, I pretty much took it as read that no one would be overly interested in medals etc, but the supposed record of service not even been enquired over.......
Not quite sure all those people that have to write grovelling redress letters, for crimes they were caught out for before they realised the error of their ways, would agree.
Whilst not actively sought by all, the LS&GC is a mark of hard work and endeavour and also a certain amount of ingenuity on the part of the individual that earned it - 15 years of undetected crime is sometimes no walk in the park
Anyway it's a good excuse to crowbar yourself into the "Ginger Drinking Tracksuit" for a good old fashioned all dayer!
well i have another couple of years to go before i get mine however i have fcuked up a few times in my time but thankfully no one has ever found me guilty so to be honest i cant wait to get5 the thing on my chest just to give somthing more to clean
It all depends on your attitude to "Long Service" and whether you want to show it or not. From your tone, I detect an sneering attitude which suggests you'll either never be eligible because of some previous major indiscretion, or, you're a snotty raga*se who needs to get himself up to the RAO's Office, sign-off and fcuk-off!
