Now my wedding was an all civpop affair especially as I had left the year before. No one wore any gongs despite their being a slack handful of OBE's MBE's and assorted gfongs sprinkled amongst the congregation. I have however noticed a more general acceptance for those awarded the baubles to wear them in public at events. My gong usually gets aired at the reunion church service and the remembrance parade. I have seen others at official do's and private events such as weddings etc wearing them in their finery. This brings me round to the question. My little sister gets married this month and I am to give her away. I could wear my veterans badge but even my mum has one of those! Would I p!ss of my sister by wearing a miniature GSM or would they have me down as Reggie Perrins mad uncle? P.S. Her wedding I believe is an all civvie affair! I'lll double check!
