New Years Honours (Overseas/Military/Fire)

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. Congratulations indeed!

    That aside, does anyone else get the impression that we don't seem to be very active when it comes to nominating our deserving troops for these Honours? The Military list does look rather short, once the Cols and above are weeded out.

  3. Pretty proud of my cousin featuring on the RAF section. Not bad considering he started out as a JT in Gutersloh.

    His promotion came through on the 1st January too. Nice double celebration for him
     
  4. Compared to the size of the population as a whole, the military does very well in terms of straight numbers of those honoured.

    And as well as the two main honours lists, there are also the separate operational honours.

    How much further ahead again of the general population do you think the military should be, and why?
     
  5. Looks like our (Oz) ex PM gets a gong from Liz:
