Interesting one this, a couple of my blokes were called in this morning to receive their OP TELIC medal. Both already had one (who hasn't!) but were then given a gold coloured varient, with the same ribbon as the normal GSM. When this was questioned by a swift phone call to the medals office, it would appear that those who have completed three or more tours are in line to be issued with this medal. Initial response was that both can't be worn together (obviously), but could replace the silver one as acknowledgment to completing 3 tours. As we had never heard of this before until now, l wonder if the same will apply to the Afghan GSM? Perhaps a good way of acknowledging time spent on deployments, in the way the brass numbers were display on the uber websters Balkans 'medals'. Picture to follow! Anyone else had one of these issued yet?
