    Bloody well done.

    That is an ASTONISHING amount of MCs!

    Is there any clever historian out there who can compare the levels of fighiting that this represents with, say the Korean War, or any other conflict?
  7. Outstanding!!, not very often you see two of your best mates names on an honours list, an MC and a DFC to boot!!!

    Well done to all.
  8. Not clever enough to do it myself but, if anybody does, they should not forget that the vast majority of the MC awards would have been MMs.

    Damn well done to all.
  9. can anyone here enlighten me as to why the RRF have so few recipients and the Gurkhas none?
  10. Congratulations one and all - outstanding efforts, very well earned!

    My thoughts too are with the families of Marine Curry Royal Marines and WOII Smith Royal Regiment of Artillery receiving the awards on behalf of their dead sons.
  11. Congratulations to all, speaks to the quality of the troops we send on ops!

    If the senior officers don't put the forms in then no recognition is received.

    The Royal Marines are obviously keen to see their guys recognised and must have a very well run system for making sure this happens.

    Well done to the boys and girls who have been recognised and shame on the seniors who failed to look after the others who no doubt deserved it but didn't get listed.
  13. Congratulations to all who received the honours. Well deserved.
  14. Great news - well done all!
