Following on from an earlier thread who has the most medals in your unit ? We too have a Medic (SNCO) in our unit with TEN Medals! and a Cpl with eight, so i guess people will now be leaving with 10-12 Medals...More like the "Yanks"
I've got 15.............................beer medals that is, all on the inside of my shreddies. I've also got a map of Africa down the front of my jeans and what suspiciously smells of Gurkha sperm encrusted in my two day old beard.
As I served through the 80's I am the proud owner of 1 gong. which I wear at work every day..............next to my 10 yrds swimming badge.
When I joined if you saw a bloke with three gongs it was rear (FI, NI and UN)and even he would have been an NCO. Now that HM Forces are being sent here, there and everywhere they hand the feckers out at will..........not that they arn't all deserved of course.
A mate who is still serving has 5 (possibly 6 now) and appeared a little bit when he told me.
