    You are a Veteran or you aren't.
    You are entitled or you aren't.
    You are a Journalist or you aren't.
    You are a Walt or you aren't.

    Discuss ....
     
  3. Is this a Wah ? you have all the details. Send of the required info they check it you get badge or don't if you're a walt.

    The clue about the badge is in what it's called "VETERANS" not "Airsoft Walterans" or LOF or chav willyhead.
     
  4. ok lets discuss.............................................................................................did you cut and paste, just inserting 'entitled' 'journalist' and 'walt' on each successive paste, or did you type it all out in a one-er?

    Actually, I typed each line individually. It's often quicker :wink:

  9. Yes mate i am a great big cnut, for having a beer and not reading the site properly as I didn't 'join up' until 1987, so I aint entitled to one, so yes IAM A CNUT----happy now? :wink:
     
  10. Mine disappeared in the vortex that is my parents house, so (around about November) I decided I would see if I could replace it by buying one - there were loads about, but each time they went for about 40quid on ebay!
     
  11. Hang on I may have missed something - but I'm sure everyone leaving the service gets one now?
     
  12. After looking at the link, it looks like I'm a cnut too - must be a different badge I was given? (which was included with a crappy photocopied "thanks for turning up" letter from Gen. Jackson
     
  13. "Please note, that Veterans who served in Armed Forces of other Countries and those who served alongside HM Armed Forces are not eligible. Examples of these are Canadian Navy or Royal Australian Air Force etc"

    I was thinking of the old boy who lived downstairs from me, but I suppose the Dirlewanger Battalion of the Waffen SS is right out then?
     
  14. What's this all about? The link doesn't seem to work.

    Edited - OK so I make mongs look good. Got it and I qualify. Whoo Hoo, a badge!!!!!
