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. After some advice, should the accumulated service medal be mounted before campaign medals? Many thanks for any info before i look a tw@ the next time i wear them.
     
  2. No.
    .......
     
  3. 1. Campaign medals (in order of issue)
    2. Battle of Jubilee
    3. ACSM
    4. LS&GC
     
  4. Don't think that is right. BoJ, ACSM, LS in order awarded.
     
  5. Three possibilities here;

    1. You enjoy buying rounds of port, and assume that the OP will too.
    2. You were awarded the aforementioned medals in the order that I listed (ie the correct order) purely by chance.
    3. You have none of the above medals, and are wildly guessing (although why anyone would do that is beyond me).
     
  6. Many thanks.
     
  7. i though no one said that apart from officers on the net!!!
