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. Just a quick question on my honours and awards on my JPA i have qualified for my LS and GC medal and was just wondering am I entitled to wear my miniature medal now. I have a summer ball coming up and don't want to get fined for being incorrectly dressed
  2. Yes you are allowed considering it can take months to receive your full size medal. Once you've qualified you've qualified whether you have the full size medal in your possession or not.

  4. Isn't Long Service and Good Conduct an oxymoron. Or is it just me?

  6. You haven't got one then?
  7. My !5 year point was 28 Jul - just checked JPA ... nothing. Did yours come through automatically on JPA (Awards/Notifications)?
  8. I checked my date as a result of another LSGC post last week and it appeared in my workflow notifications approx 2-3 months after I had reached the 15 year point; not immediately as I had thought.

    It's not automatically uploaded onto JPA. Your SFA should maintain a list of those due, dates etc. As each approaches they'll be put forward to the CO for approval. This is then entered onto your docs as the qualification criteria and the application is made on your behalf to the Medal Office.

    In short, don't just assume that once you've done the time you're permitted to wear. The final approval lies with your CO.

  13. Don't know if its different in the Army but in the Andrew we had to Request for it.
  14. I got the LSGCA myself...Last Seen Getting Clean Away!
  15. David Cameron - That is no longer the system, all done automatically on JPA now, CO gets workflow, checks with SSA that there are defo no skeletons, approves, then appears in the individuals workflow, medal issued, Medal office stick it in your Hons and awards on JPA (in theory, reality is that i have seen medals arrive before the workflow!!)

    However, you are bang on, don't assume you can have it until the CO has approved the award.

    To the OP - if it has been approved, get your minatures done, certainly my last badge would check if someone awaiting presentation of said bauble had put their minature on and fine accordingly.
