SAS, RAF Police biker with bling tat medals

It appears from your link, that this is awarded to those youths who are put forward, and are under 18 years of age. It's only been going since Sep 2012, so if there was a presentation in October of that year, that means that the oldest a recipient could be today, is 28 years old, and our 'fella certainly looks a lot older than that.

Mmmm, it's getting stranger.
No, read the wikipedia entry again. these are awarded to individuals and there is a slightly different award to youths. BCA and BCyA

He looks like he should be sporting one of these:

About 5 years ago, I had a manager who was a volunteer blood biker in Sheffield area. Turned out we had both served in the same unit around the same time, but never knew each other. He even named a few people that I knew there.

Ref the initial post in the thread.
Yes, he is ex RAF police, and wears pretty much the same kind of get up as other RBL riders.

Have we identified the Red and White gong on the inner side of his jacket? Looks like the Trumpton Town Long Service Medal for Fire-fighters!

Haven't found the mystery medal yet but here's some further info

His name does appear on the 'British Citizens Award' list for Jan. 2016. (See post #46).

Apart from the fancy dress he seems to be doing some positve, if not laudable, stuff. (I say this bearing in mind that he's a martial arts specialist).

He also teaches kick boxing, and does an awful lot of good work within the local community.
 
This probably deserves a discussion of it's own,

But I have been riding bikes since 1973, back when you used them everyday, all year round for commuting, and then after work socially or on holiday which I did for the next 30 plus years racking up maybe 400,000 two wheeled miles.

IMHO, It's all getting a bit Gay and American all these teddy bear runs and attaching to military events.
I suppose fair play if the riders are ex-military, but otherwise it's often an excuse for the usual supermarket minor managers and other losers to dress up and play hard man on their Hogs at the weekends, never seen so many patches and sneers on clean and shiny middle aged well off professions as you see around the usual bike areas.

Either the "Wild Hog" mob or more latterly people with bikes ("adventure bikes") designed to tackle the Paris Dakar which are shiny and spotless and like the rders only come out in the sun...the 2 wheeled equivalent of the Range Rover Sport we call them.

I am not anti bike, still have a few but the two wheeled world has changed dramatically since my youth and is now just another "hobby" it seems for a lot of well heeled poseurs.

As mentioned above, he seems to be doing some positve, if not laudable, stuff. However, his wearing of those gongs doesn't do his credibility an favours!

Anyone seen this pillock? And can anyone identify what the bling is where proper medals should reside. He claims to be ex-RAF Police, but I wasn't aware that the 5 miler of death qualified one for an SAS beret!

To the misinformed individual who has referred to 'ME' and some sort of walt.. GET YOUR FACTS right before you make assertions about 'bling' medals: The first medal is one presented to me by HM Representative the Lord Lt of Gloucestershire Sir Henry Elwes in 1999 for preventing a robbery and chasing and apprehending the offender. Other local citizens and military personnel were also awarded medals at the same ceremony. The second medal was awarded to me by BOSCH Fire & Rescue as it was to all their personnel who had met their service and community requirements. The third one is the British Citizens Award Medal presented to me at the Palace of Westminster for my voluntary services to education. The fourth medal is an Emergency Voluntary Service Blood Bike Medal awarded to all qualifying members in August of this year.. it was presented by HM Representative the Lord Lt of Bristol Mrs Peaches Golding, Air Vice Marshal Martin Clark and fully supported by official representatives from the Police, Fire & Rescue and the Ambulance Services. I was 'asked' to wear the medals at this event. The RBL, RAFA and RAFPA have all informed me that I am entitled to wear them as they were awarded to me.. not purchased. I look forward to an apology.. before consideration of further action. Thank you. Oh and yes, I did serve in the RAF Police, as well as Civvy Police and the beret is the official beret worn by the RAF Police Association of which I am a life member.
