Who would want to wear 1 of these

Ive seen lots of the oldies wearing them at the association I helped out with, lots of the National service old boys wear them with pride. WHY

Never said I had a problem, just seen the site and thought I would publicise it a bit more. I am eligible in 4 years just wanted to get a few opinions. So calm down my 1 Scots friend

As I described after my return from Edinburgh last week, it is a pulling aid of no small impact. apparently it enables birds over thirty to achieve trust...something that being a soldier never allowed me to achieve with birds under thirty!

It is also nice to be recognised as a net contributor to society rather than be herded in with the neds, chavs and nimbys who are gross drains...

I have seen them being worn at annual renions . Probably mainly by ex National Servicemen as they were discharged after two years service with no recognition for what they did. Many served in active service in theatres such as Malaya,Korea and Cyprus/Kenya and lost their lives.

You seem to imply with Your smilie and Legion jibe that veterans should have a problem with wearing one

Well, it sounds good to me, just seems strange that MOD have issued something which will be of benefit with no gain for them directly. :D

Not in the least just wanted some decent feedback. Which seems to be doing the trick. 8)

Not sure if you have seen these yet, or seen anyone wearing them out side of the Legion. :twisted:
In answer to the thread heading - I would, and now I know where to get them from and that I am eligible I’m gona get me one and wear it – why not?

Wear them with pride, if you are entitled. I can't quite work out what to do about mine. Given my great age I am entitled to one but as I'm still serving (or at least rumour has it I am) I don't think I can get one yet.

Oh I expect there will be a downside - they are probably made from scrap T55s and riddled with harmful DU dust!
