Operational Honours And Awards

Discussion in 'Royal Signals' started by PoisonDwarf, Mar 6, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Well done, know a few of the guys myself
     
  2. well done to all those who recieved honours, to say no doubt well deserved probably doesnt even come close.
     
  3. BBC Radio4 "Broadcasting House" this morning, reviewed the newspapers, as usual. One reviewer mentioned that now, of all the recommendations, only a significantly smaller number were actually approved/awarded.

    I’ll try and find/post a LINK, but the (serious) reviewer suggested that the number of recommendations for medals reflected how badly the war/conflict was going - and, that No10 - wanting to play down any negative connotations - is now refusing to approve as many awards (proportionally) as it has done previously.

    Edited to add: Listen to Saul David, review this particular item at 0944hrs (44:24).
