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. i am looking to get hold of the small number 3 that fit on medals.Not had much joy on E Bay.
  2. For your UN Medal? I did 2 tours, didnt bother putting up the numeral though.

    Go here though

    Medal Numerals
  3. thought that you werent allowed to wear numbers anymore
    the powers that be get embarrassed when you've done too many tours
  4. I was under the impression that the number 2 did for multiple tours , again like black_hand says, to prevent the powers from embarressment of having you with bos/kos/iraq/afghan/god knows where else, with lots of little digits on , indicating you spend more time off english shores than your average oil rigger.....
  5. its for nato medals.Unit did supply but not any more and to be honest i just cant be @rrsed chasing the admin office about it any more.Many thanks all.
  6. Warrior why would you want to put a numeral on your medals? Most people that have been on the NATO tours have completed more than one and adding nemerals to "tour drop" is just Chav!


  7. Thanks SS,

    just gonna nip off and remove my numerals from my bos and kosovo gongs :p

    Can't be looking chavvy in my 2's, I'm sure somebody somewhere will have me agai'd on a chav charge :lol:
