  1. .. I know that there is a separate posting for this... (I can't find it..doe!!)

    But this is incredible.. and I not decrying the work of the unit involved, fair play to them, they do and have done a fantastic job I am sure... its just the MOD's plain inability to get these out..

    Unit back November 2005, medals presented 29th January.. wow that was very quick..

    I deployed 3rd July 2003.... presented with mine...

    Well I am still waiting. I am also waiting for a response from my MP who I wrote to over a week ago by email.... For those of you that are also waiting here is a useful link,.. please write if you feel the urge.. I am sure they will be pleased to hear from you.

  2. Back from Telic July 03.

    Medal.

    Err, last week...
     
  3. Pretty good planning by their CO, I'd bet. Tell the local GOC that you are coming home and would like a medal's parade and before you know it you've polished your boots and the old duffer is pinning that gong to your boobs.

    Unfortunately, I have no doubt that the MOD Medals Office would have had to stop processing some of the older applications in order to get these ones done in time.

    I got mine last week, by the way. (TELIC 3 - returned Mar 04)
