Medals/ribbons

#1
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!

Popcorn Check, Beer Check.

3 on his coat as a Loggie sound perfectly reasonable

Self Awarded perhaps? :p Storemen need bling too! :-D

More effort needed. Now go away and think about the mistakes you've made.

You get the Cadet Forces Medal for 12 years efficient service in abusing kids and the Jubilee medals for 5 years efficient service at that time they was issued :)

You get one in the US for doing a tour in a recruiting office. After reading threads like this I think we should do the same.

Sorry for asking a genuine question. Won't bother next time.

arr don't be like that- i think you should really really reconsider your employment options if you cant take the minor ribbing being given out here- as they used to say "if you cant take a joke -you should'nt have joined"!!

Don't the septics get a gong for tying their own boot laces?
It's a rainbow ribbon. We call it a "Thanks for Being Here" ribbon. It's not a medal - just a tiny ribbon. It serves absolutely no purpose except having everyone who finished their training being able to sport something on their bland uniforms. However, during a time of war, everyone who serves DOES get a medal. Combat or not. It's called a National Defense Service Medal. It merely shows that you were in the military during a time of war.

I have two. I earned one - since I did actually fight and trade fire with the enemy.
