SAS medals on ebay

#1
Well it looks like that time of year when the mongs come out to play on ebay. Here we have SAS medals for sale! The medals are so secret that they're not even engraved!!! Plus it is clear to see the medals are fake. I think this bloke needs some of our famous ARRSE bidding! I think we should also mock him with questions. :threaten:

SAS medals

St Johns Ambulance Long Serving Medal, someone must be having a laugh!!

I suppose he is entitled to the Salvation Army Trombone playing medal as well!!

Another good find, Fallsch.


Mmm. So the GSM isn't engraved for security reasons? His first gong was the GSM NI and he was clearly in the SAS when he recieved it hence it not being engraved. Double mmmm.


The St Johns gong makes it all the more realistic!

I was doubting his past with the Special Air Service until he mentioned the relationship with the St Johns Ambulance....

Worth every penny, I may bid on them myself and put them on my wall next to the cardboard cut out of David Stirling circumnavigating the moon in Aug 1958

how come there is no rosette on the Telic medal?
They look like Mess Dress miniatures, which would explain why no Telic 1 rosette or engraved names.

My advice is to bid a sensible amount and offer to pick them up in person, get his address and go round and leather the Walting Lying Cnut, it's an outrage that he expects to get away with this.

His description of these medals is a slur on those who have been injured in service and who have deployed on ops in the service of this country.

This cnut deserves a fooking good beating.

This is unbeleivable!!! No Number, rank, name etc due to "security" reasons??? And how come there is no rosette on the Telic medal?

Outrageous.......
At the risk of being wahh'ed, the Rosette is mounted on the Medal Ribbon on No2s it should not be put onto the medal ribbon itself; that is why the date clasp is there.

Correct, I was slightly wrong about this in my earlier post as well. They do look like miniatures though, in which case there wouldn't be a rosette on there anyway.

And he still deserves a good beating.

Cheers LWM.
