Op TELIC medal issue

#2
Someone has to get them first, so why not them?

I didn't realise it was a race to get them.... never mind a Regular Army vs TA thing which I think this is what this post is about!!

they didnt get them first, I saw a whole load of Irish Guards wearing them 3 weeks ago at the cenotaph in london.
 
#4

we'll all get ours before we die(?)
 
#5

Can anybody explain to me why these small bunch of TA soldiers are receiving this medal first?

I don't think they ARE first - saw a piece about London Regt TA's being issued their's on return from TELIC 2 a while back.

It depends how good the Unit admin is - bit of a choker for those who were in the first wave of Telic 1 to be leap frogged by people who were in theatre later though.

If your unit was part of TELIC 1 and you haven't been told when the campaign medal will be issued to you - spk to your Chief Clerk NOW!

The London Regiment ones were miniatures in little display cases - not the real thing - obviously the journos who wrote the article had no idea that there was a difference..!

Filbert - I had that problem too - tured out that my unit had dragged their heels. When I got posted I asked my new admin unit (civvie led I hasten to add) to chase it up for me - they said they would resubmit in case the other paperwork had got lost. Funny ol' thing two weeks later my Sierra Leone OSM arrived......

Get the unit to resubmit!!!

PS - given that I was on one of drawdown flights for SILKMAN I guess you should also have had yours by now!

There y'go Charles James....it's all down to sucky unit Admin....from personal experience , MoD bureaucrats react quickest to those who send regular letters saying

" what's the state of play with....." - 'cos they know damn well they'll get another one next week till they DO sort it out !

Step One: get yr Sirerra Leone gadgy sorted
Step Two: sort out frikkin' Op Telic bottle-top for the rest of us!!!

( I'll wait by the letter-box for the postie then...)
