Yes it should be recognised.
That said, When the Regt Col recently retired, a lot of seniors and officers gave him a big surprise.
No 3 line whip, just a question of wanting to say thank you for hundreds of years service to the RAMC - man and boy.
Who said the Corps didn't remember.
I hope you get the recognition that 22yrs service earns.
I can't understand why we do not have a 'Years of Service' Medal. Why not scrap the LSGC medal and initiate a medal for recognition of 10 years service with a five year bar thereafter and let it be for all ranks?
