  1. Do the Guards use Lance-Corporal? I thought it was Corporal and Lance-Sergeant.
     
  2. From another thread.
     
  3. I know it can seem like quibbling and petty but I wish the media could get the little details like this right (or maybe the MoD press department get it spot on)

    There was a feature about HMS Belfast a couple days back she was described on the BBC as a "Battlecruiser"* and "once the world's most powerful warship" well no she isn't and she was never that....

    Anyway brave chap and deserved.




    * small rant coming : Attlee government could have preserved the KGV or Warspite but sold them for scrap to give the money to their union friends instead -sorry off topic -mouth closed.
     
  4. [pedant]And another thing, he's not an Afghan hero, he's a British hero. He might be more accurately be described as a British hero of the Afghanistan conflict[/pedant].
     
  5. It is right. Maybe you should read before posting.

    The main tragedy here is that James Ashworth is not here with us to wear his medal.
