Royal Navy Divers Get Adwards From Putin
Three cheers for RN! Great thanks.
Nice one. Splice the mainbrace!
The boys did well.
Good to see them get the credit they deserve.
Its nice to see that the Crab doing his normal taxi work has been acknowledged
Well done lads and the crab! He's probably the only serving RAF Officer who earned his medal!
Perhaps the crab medal was for missing out on the 5* hotel - Putin was tacitly acknowledging the hardship caused by the lack of suitable accomodation
I bet they aren't allowed to wear them...
Could Mrs Blair and her husband deny them the right to wear them after such a public presentation?
Well done lads, lets hope you get to wear them with pride.
Foreign medals aren't allowed to be worn on UK uniform if I remember correctly. Can anyone prove me wrong?
They require "royal" approval.
As a rough guide (and as quite a few of us are being presented with US gongs) a medal that is presented by a head of a state is usually likely to be approved my Her Maj and you will be auth to wear it. recent examples are Bronze Stars, presented by GWB, approved for wear as opposed to Distinguished Service Medal presented by Sec Def, not approved for wear.
An interesting choice of site sponsor!?
Is this a step towards conformity-has Arrse been accepted as an 'establishment' organ?
