Missing out on LSGC due to redundancy

#1
I'm due to miss out on the Long Service and Good Conduct Medal by a few weeks if I'm selected for redundancy. In cases like this, surely LSGC medals should be awarded to those close to 15 years who would otherwise be eligible. Thoughts.

My thoughts are that you're life won't be worth living without that medal.

You're a disgrace and a social pariah.

End it all now with the mess Webley.

Or get used to the reality that no one in civvy street gives a toss.

Unlucky mate.

PM me your address and I'll post you a photo copy of my own LS&GC.

Honesty is the best policy, if you are a trade/rank about to be reduced in numbers, and you want to leave anyway, tell the powers that be, I will volunteer, but may I stay on 10 days to gain my LSGC? etc etc etc

Failing that, go on leave during your end time, if you are out of leave, go sick, bad back, whatever, wring it out until you have your 15 years. Going AWOL is probably not advisable to gaining LSGC

Unlucky mate, I've just got another clasp for mine.


An older bastard.

Great idea...bad back on your med docs will go down a treat with any prospective employer!! Especially if it suddenly miraculously improves!
Like your sentiment though.

If you want one that badly, buy one. Honestly, who's really going to give a shit in the real World?

If it really means that much to you either Join the TA for a couple of weeks when you get out or get put in nick for a couple of weeks to extend your service.

And how is getting put in the nick for a few weeks going to square with long service and GOOD CONDUCT. Shooting ones self in the foot innit.

I thought about that but doesn't service in the TA go towards the VRSM or whatever it's called? Also time in military nick doesn't count towards service.

unlucky, anyway i would not exchange my 14 days in nick, and 14 days of ROPS in Duisburg for any shitty medal. Ide sacrifice that medal for the good times i had as a s young driver in Germany.

The title is a bit misleading , you should edit it to read missing out on LS&GC because I don't meet the qualifying criteria

Never take anything I say seriously, however, shooting oneself in the foot might land a couple of weeks in sickbay and extend the service a bit! ;-)

Erm.. Don't think so. I got my LS&GC after doing time and having said Regy Entry.
Thats all very well and good but not everyone gets the opportunity nor is prepared to suck the CO's cock while taking it from the RSM sans lube & with sand. The lengths! Some will go to for a f.*cking medal ^~
