non article 5 medal afghan

#1
any guru's out there clarify something for me please.

am i entitled to claim this medal (herrick 2006 & 2007), i know that cannot wear it next to the osm but just wondered if i can ask for it before i get out in a couple of months.

only asking as our lads have just come back & they all got both medals whereas we never.

cheers.

all the best

If you qualified for the OSM then you're entitled to the non article.

Not allowed to wear the non-article 5 though.
aye i know that G_M stated that in the first statement (not paying again to get my medals remounted for the sake of one more), but never been issued one so in principal i should be able to ask for one

Agreed you're not allowed to wear it (including mess dress). There's bound to be some lying around in a clerks office somewhere. I know our clerk had a box full of them gathering dust in his stationary locker.

And apparently you can get one for every tour of Afghan, but might just be a rumor.
If you could, why would you bother? For all the use a non-article 5 afghan medal is...

Now if it was made of chocolate...

Waaahh? If not then.....

I take it you were on Op Fingal? If so then its the same OSM.

I was issued mine after being in Kabul in 2002 and the same medal is being issued for Op Herrick.

I was on Fingal, went up to Bagram to support Jacana and have deployed twice on Herrick (I loves Afghan, I do!). I didn't get the Non Article 5 for Fingal/Jacana but I got it in 2007 for Herrick 6. Waste of time if you can't wear it. I also got the Non Article 5 for Oculus but again, can't wear it because I already have the NATO Kosovo medal.
