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 trying to head off any walting accusations here.

    I recently worked in Afghanistan (and Iraq when it was going) on a FCO contract as a civilian. I was surpised to find out that civilians get a medal for thier work.

    Can I wear this medal with my other ones (those awarded for ops in uniform)? I am still serving in the TA.

    It is identical to the Afghan medal (OSM) that serving military get, except the name on the edge does not have my rank, just name (it may have my passport number to, it's at home, and I'm typing this at work).
  2. You most certainly can.
  3. Thanks for the quick reply.
