I wonder if any of them have actually asked.

The new rules will allow sex-change personnel to continue wearing the insignia of their former units, including the green beret of the Royal Marines and the “wings” of the Parachute Regiment.

However the accompanying guidance warns: “They should bear in mind that this may identify them as having previously been of a different gender.”
Won't the size 11 boots, girt big hands and an Adam's apple do that then? :crazy:

Why do they need new medals? Surely they are engraved with service number, rank and surname? I don't see the problem. Am I being thick?

Eh makes life more difficult ... if you bagged of with a female soldier a sneaky peek at the medals might have been a clue 8)

Yes and unless they change the Regiment for any ex-Infantry & Armoured "Shims" won't that be a give away as well?

I'm old and was in when we still had the WRAC, so not sure how the new system works but the only female soldiers serving are badged to Corps, not teeth arm regiments, correct???

What a load of shite. :roll:

Legs can surely clarify this one. As she is still serving, does she still have her 2xxxxxxx number issued when (he, back then) joined up, does she have a new Wxxxxxxx number, or a shiny new JPA 3xxxxxxx number?

But surely they were issued the medal whilst serving under that regi number? What a complete pile of shi*e!

Am I being stupid or too much cider.

If a guy (or girl) gets issued a medal under any circumstances in the gender they are, then they deserve it.

If the above said changes sex (Legs please help here!) then surely the medal was earned by the person in the original gender and can not therefore be worn by the new gender. (New identity etc, new engraving to a person that did not earn it, yet they did in a previous body)

IE: Sgt Butch Smith (Male) is awarded the MC.

Sex change: now Sgt Beatrice Smith ( :D )

Could it now be recorded that Female Betrice and NOT Butch was awarded/holds the medal.

Country house cider has a lot to answer for: 8O

Basically, "whoever" deserves the medal they received as "whatever" they were at the time. Therefore he/she should obviously and rightly continue to wear their gong(s), but why waste money changing the stuff that was factual when the award was made, (number, rank, name, unit)?

Be whatever you want but your medals are what they are. It's not like these folks are given completely new identities with a fake school record and picture of little Johnny changed to little Janey is it. I doubt that many people would care or even want the change made.

FFS, what a government! :roll:

Logically then, if a female gets married she should be allowed to have the name on her previously earned medals changed by the system. Does anybody know if they are? :?
