i've been interested in joining the territorial army for some time now but have put back attending the recruitment centre due to wanting to get my job sorted and passed everything successfully. The end is nearly in sight and i'm looking at applying to the Anglian regiment (6th) in January. I've done some research on it but one thing thats poped into my head while reading up training and service ect is, how do you earn medals and ribbons? Obviously it's for good conduct and heroic service ect but do you get one for passing basic training, doing a tour ect? I only as ask one of the people i went to school with had his passing out parade a few months ago and already had 3 on his coat, and as far as i know he went into logistics! I am just curious really, there must be some knowledgeable serviceman out there who could lend a helping had! Cheers!
