I wouldn't wear them to a fancy dress party - even if I was going as a cnut!!

If I saw somebody wearing one of those, I think i'd be more than tempted to set fire to them. Total shoite.

I personally wouldn't wear one (even though I did see if they done my old corps) but if you had a kid who wanted to stand next to his old man / woman then they could be good to include them into the whole rememberance thing and regimental pride. Stick to regimental tie, medals or veterans badge and maybe a regimental pin if not wearing beret.

ANY medal you have to buy is Walty therefore anyone who wears one is a Walt. There are no excuses. It personally grips my sh*t when I see veterans on parade wearing walty bling medals. Last year at my local remembrance parade I saw an individual on parade be-decked in 4 or 5 walty bling medals. he was also sporting a veterans badge so he was a genuine veteran. There can only be one intention of this individual and that is to big it up in front of a crowd. Totally disrespectful and unnecessary.

Waltier than a walty thing.

Anyone wearing one of them to blag non-existant service should be prosecuted, especially at this time of year.

What would be nice, and would cost the government virtually nothing (in fact, it could even produce a profit) would be to make it illegal to wear medals contrary to entiltlement, in much the same way that the Uniforms Act 1894 does:

Uniform Act 1894 said:
It shall not be lawful for any person not serving in Her Majesty’s Military Forces to wear without Her Majesty’s permission the uniform of any of those forces, or any dress having the appearance or bearing any of the regimental or other distinctive marks of any such uniform: Provided that this enactment shall not prevent . . . . . . any persons from wearing any uniform or dress in the course of a stage play performed in a place duly licensed or authorised for the public performance of stage plays, or in the course of a music hall or circus performance, or in the course of any bona fide military representation.
Something for the Queen's speech Mr A?

Maybe if you could get them with a gay rainbow ribbon they would make a suitable comedy gift for an unloved one on retirement. But otherwise total toss. I assume they won't spend alot of time checking customers service records before pocketing the cash and sending them out. As said above, buy a regimental tie.

So it's walty but on another thread you defend the wearing of tin 'commemorative' tat. Why don't you just go out and meet girls?
