Whilst Not Exactly a Walt......

......noticed this chappy in the RBL magazine complaining about his life in general etc etc.

He said he left in 1987 at the age of 30 after joining up at 16 so I wonder how he can be wearing the Battle of Jubilee and his RAF LSGC....I'm not even going to mention the two at the end! It says that he struggled to get a job so he wasn't in one of the Emergency Services that got the Jubilee gong (maybe he was a waiter in Buck House).
My point is that if the RBL are going to feature people in the magazine then surely they should check the credibility of the people featured.

If the link doesn't take you straight to the page it's on Page 30.

Would it not be unusual for DWP to demand repayment of pension or other benefits in instances where they have been inadvertantly over-paid?

I don't know what the rules are but the in the cases I've come across of over-payments, the amounts have been written off.

Before we band this man un-godly, maybe someone on arrse knows him? I doubt even a walt would have the balls to have an article wrote about him in the Legion, i doubt even more that they would just let anyone in it. Surely they must do a background check.

I was curious why there wasnt a rosette on the FI medal, jump to page 62 replace your bling, peruse further down, three different ribbons on three different medals for the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

Page 64 there is an electronic hammer for cleaning glass.

Page 51, COLD ACHING HANDS, you need gloves, £19.95 a pair plus £78.50 p&p

I think the guy may have been handed the jacket complete with bling, if I was starving to death in my car, my first thought wouldn't be to replace medals.

If that not the BAOR medal on the right?
Yes, it is now you mention it.

The Green & Red one is bling too, it's the Border Service medal

It looks like the maths don't add up eith er for the LS&GC

Wiki said:
An airman who completes 15 years of reckonable service from the date of attestation or age 17½, whichever is later, shall be eligible to receive the medal. However, there are a number of offences which would normally preclude award of the LS&GCM. Awards are only made after a thorough check of an airman's record of service
Long Service and Good Conduct Medal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So even assuming he joined as a junior(?) then the minimum age to qualify would still be 32½.

Still, who cares? I don't, as no one seesm to care about my Crimean Campaign medal and VC at the Legion anymore
