I have a few gongs and having recently joined plod was annoyed to say the least that I am not able to wear my ribbons let alone medals. In a rationalisation of uniforms those officers below Inspector don't get issued tunics. (Not all forces). In my view (Cynic radar) as a cost saving measure. Therefore there is no practical way to wear ribbons or medals. At least I should be permitted to wear them whilst giving evidence in HM courts. Your views would be appreciated. Notty.
