Dread

LE
And once again the Royal Artillery stabs most of its officers in the back and nominates only a couple of people.
 
Lots of officers, few WOs, very few NCOs and no Pte /equiv.

No real change there then.
 
I know four of the MBEs. Good lads all of them imx and well deserved

RIP
My nails are too long, but I got one too.
 
Anthony Beevor,ex.11hussars.

How many Pte and NCOs did you write up and nominate?
 
How many Pte and NCOs did you write up and nominate?

If I was still serving you would have a very valid point.

My point is that if you look at the list and make the assumption that all 'leaders' are doing their job then precious few NCOs (and only one Pte=) is doing anything above and beyond.

How many did you write up when serving?

It might be because the Officer/WO cohort are more likely to be in the kind of jobs that can have a strategic impact, or get wider visibility and therefore get written up as such.

No doubt there is some cronyism too, however.

Strictly proportional to their worth to the world as human beings. I'm sure you understand.
I don't understand why the civilian list titles new MBE holders as 'Medallists'; but then, most of them already are, for running, jumping and riding bikes, or hitting balls with a wooden bat. To get a knighthood, of course, you need really big muscles in the right places, with no aspirin-like substances to help them move faster.
Ridding our society of the EU menace didn't get Farage a BEM, which disappoints me.

I wrote a number up as it happens, and had some success which always pleased me more than if I had been the recipient. But I just saw it as part of my job.

Getting one's muscle in the right place is its own reward.

Exactly right; and I'm glad some of your writeups were successful.

However, I'd say that SO2 Community Engagement in a garrison HQ may be in a job with much wider opportunity for undertaking the type of actions worthy of a write-up than Pte Smith, 3rd rifleman, B Section, 2 Pl, D Company, 1 Loamshires.

It might also be that the Officer/WO/SNCO cohort get closer visibility from those who write up the recommendations. I don't object, because they usually have the greater impact; however the List has supposedly been intended to be a different thing from what it was in many years past. Unfortunately the sticky political fingers just can't resist pressing the right political buttons. I'm no member of Momentum, but the objections to the greasy system of reward - to those just doing their job, and being well paid for it, and those who make the relevant awards look cool and down with the kids on the street - are greater than they ever were. It really is time for change.
