QDJM - who gives a rats arse????

#1
Basically I couldnt give a fuck about it!!!

To me its more money I have to shell out to mount the fucker and my minature. If you qualify like me, all I will say is you poor bastard, more money down the lav.

If you dont, tough shite get sometime under yer belt and stop whinging and putting your vetrans campaigns on facebook. What a load of bolllocks.

Here endeth the lesson.

I wholeheartedly agree. Sell it to one of the crying cold war warriors, they're bidding £100+ for them on Ebay. That tidy sum will pay for a copy and mounting with money left over for some ale and snouts.

Win - win and everyone's happy.

Mate of mine had the UN medal for a cyprus tour, he considered it a sunshine holiday so never had it mounted or wore it. B&T, just do the same if you really dont care, I suspect that you do though if you're getting a minature.

How do you qualify for a QDJM? ( Not that I care though).

I have heard it referred to as The Heartbeat Medal. If you're warm and breathing, you qualify.

Not unlike our National Defence Service Medal. Damned thing has been handed out during basic training to God alone knows how many. I've referred to it as The Fire Watch Medal because everyone, at one time or another, has pulled fire watch or barracks guard.

Now. Having said all that, how about Burma Stars for the poor fucks used as slave labour by the Japs? They were told they didn't qualify because "you weren't fighting; you were prisoners." The scrote who was responsible for that ruling ought to have been made to lay several miles of railway track, on his own, using hand tools, sleeping rough and on starvation rations.

Not that I have a firmly held opinion, etc.

I never did understand why you yankee doodles get medals for passing basic.....I just supposed it had something to do with cartoons.

Not too long ago a friend showed me a photo of her son, recently passed out from basic. I didn't recognize one of the ribbons he was wearing. Sure enough, it was completing basic training. WTF? If he HADN'T completed basic training, he'd have been shipped home without the uniform. And the AF used to want a clean, uncluttered uniform. Those days obviously are gone forever. They even tried to order my First Sergeant to remove his WWII gunner's wings (8AF B-17 out of the UK). He told "them" to go piss up a rope. He earned them; he was going to wear them.

I'll wear mine with pride. I got nothing for my actions on the balcony.

They don't paint themselves you know.
