Good afternoon!

I hope some of you will be interested in the following websites which give some information about the on-going campaign for the award of a UK National Defence Medal and, furthermore, feel that you can support the campaign. I'm sure all will agree that it is an absolute disgrace that Australian servicemen (amongst others in the Commonwealth) are recognised for their service whilst British veterans have to do with out! The striking of a medal would be a small price to pay for the country to recognise all those who have served and yet have nothing to show for their dedication - including, but not limited to, the many National Servicemen who served with honour and courage for NO REWARD!

Thank you for your time and interest.

Well, I certainly wasn't expecting that response. I'm sure we can do without the foul and abusive language thank you very much.

I was hoping that people would see fit to support their older comrades but it seems by the responses so far that I was wrong. Here's hoping that you're a small and somewhat childish minority.

And before you indulge in personal abuse, may I remind you that I was also a soldier and am probably old enough to be your Grandfather.

And? Are we supposed to owe you something because of your age? The NDM will be a medal for those who did fuckall in their career worthy of a medal. They feel inadequate standing next to current soldiers who have earned their medals on current operations.

Perhaps you could search the site before posting? Then you might have discovered the extensive previous discussion on this, and been prepared for exasperation and worse.

This subject has already been discussed at great length recently. The general consensus was that it is a bit walty and a medal for nothing. I for one can think of better things to spend the money on.

Oh bless! Was it the harshness of the caps lock that upset you? :roll:

This has been done to death on here and I for one, do not want a fucking repeat of it! :evil:

Oh and if you're old enough to be my grandfather, then you should have been dead for years!

Oh in that case of course everyone deserves a medal for just turning up :roll:

Do you all get together and discus which one is going next with or is it the same couple with different user names.

Seen as you are from an older generation how about

Surely that should read any soldier who earned their medals? 8O

Whoa!....i'd feel inadequate wearing something as trite as an NDM....The only thing I was ever proud of was that I was part of the deterrent, that was enough for me...and why should I feel inadequate stood next to someone who's earned the gongs? They are HIS not MINE... :wink:

What a lovely gentleman YOU are!

No, you do not 'owe' me anything due to my age (except perhaps that oldies of my generation kept the barrack-room flame burning so that you would have an army to inherit).

As for your assertion that we did nothing worthy of a medal, may I remind you that the Cold War is by common consensus considered the most dangerous period in WORLD HISTORY. My service may not count for much in your opinion, sunshine, but I contributed my part to the defence effort (NATIONAL SERVICEMAN, 112 COY RASC, CAITHNESS BKS, VERDUN, B.A.O.R, 1955 TO 1957). I have the greatest of respect for todays soldiers but the sacrifices of the past should not be forgotten.

Perhaps you should get your knees brown before jumping down the throat of your old and bold comrades, sonny jim.
