The NID card on the poster is a good indication of when this photo was taken, pre 1952, as that is when NID cards were discontinued. I still have mine. Issued to my mother, with my details when I was born.....By the way, old are you?;)
It’s a re-enactment photo taken at a photo shoot. just noticed the modern 3 pin plug also visible in the van window, bit of a giveaway.

Recognise anyone in this pic.

Edited to remove name of the company organising the event.

Don‘t NAAFI employees get gongs if they serve overseas?

Obviously there is the bloke off Ardent mentioned above, but I also knew a girl who got either a Telic or Herrick medal for working in the NAAFI on camp.

Nice lass, Saffer. Died in a very unfortunate bus crash in South America.
I 've seen the memorial in 1982 but don't recall seeing any names.
When were they added or did I just miss them.
E2A I think it was the Guards own memorial they built out of stones I saw.
Welsh Guards memorial is on the other side of the small cove from the Galahad memorial, which is white.


i dont see why not as a civi employed by CRG on an FCO contract i received, out of the blue the Iraq Reconstruction Medal and Iraq/Op what ever its name was. That was in 2008/9. i believe all the FCO Staff and contractors received them
Many civilians get medals for a whole myriad of reasons, including some for gallantry, which is well and good, but you can't wear them with a veterans badge.
