UN Medals

Discussion in 'Multinational HQ' started by jack-daniels, Dec 30, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Chatting a mate of mine tonight who's ex RAAF (20 plus years) and who now works for the UN. He's seved in Somalia, East Timor, Lebanon and others but I was surprised to learn that he doesn't qualify for any UN medal that are awarded in these locations. Surely that ain't right, oh, and by the way, he thinks that Aldershot is the biggest shithole he's been too!
  2. That link don't work Blob, but as he's now a civvy working for the UN in these gaffs I thought it was harsh that he doesn't qualify for the said medals considering he's ex mil, albeit an Aussie!
  3. Try the second link Jack.
  4. Ta very much.
  5. That's pretty harsh on the civvy workers for them as they don't qualify. Just read through that and you think that they'd qualify being UN. My mate was telling me some ropey old tales of contact and they don't get a gong for it! Oh, and he wants me to go on holiday to Lebanon next year so he can show me the sites! Better than Aldershot I suppose!
