Why should they accept it? It's a MOD90, is a military ID card (the clue is in the name).

What if I made my own ID card up, and asked them to accept that? I bet they'd say "do one"

You kicked off in Asda because they wouldnt give you some cigarettes? You sound like a complete bellend.

The legal limit for cigarettes is 16, are you a cadet? I'm not sure how buying fags "supports our soldiers?" Or do you mean the "kicking off" bit of your frankly shiite story that I think you've made up. I fail to see how kicking off will help endear the public to the forces.

Again......bellend

Granted this subject pops up from time to time but is there really any excuse for a reply like that?

I call bollocks windup.

1) It's been time and time again.
2) 'I used it to get into a club' always kicks people off.
3) I got banned from the shop whilst in uniform for supporting soldiers... hasn't that been done before too??

Definitely 100% a wind up. Asda might ban somebody for kicking off, but not for supporting soldiers. I think that bit came from the 'I went to co-op to get a few tins' story a few months ago. Like I said, failed windup.

fair enough, thats your perogative, but with a reply like that maybe youre the one that looks like the bellend.
I am a bellend, but I've never made up some bullshit story on Arrse about not getting served cigs in a shop, just to try and get some outrage bus action.

Is Dazwilso your alias? Was it you? Did you chuckle whilst you typed it, thinking "hehe, this'll get 'em going"? Go on, it's you isn't it.

Did you shed a small tear when your pants plan failed, and your arrse windup was shot down so quickly?

whatever you say! are you a knight of the computer table? keep going keyboard warrior, if making people feel small makes you feel clever then good for you!

yes, he asked a bone question, but a reply calling someone a "bellend" that they dont even know, come on!

whether its your rank or the number of medals above your avatar that makes you feel big but this is a public forum, and everyone HERE IS equal! get a grip

If this story is true, and you kicked off in rig in public you have basically projected a negative image of HM Forces, something many people have been trying hard to improve in recent years, to get us recognition for what we do, not reward (as Mr John Nichols quoted on Sky News this morning, what a top bloke he is).

No-one owes us anything and thinking that being in uniform makes you a special case is wrong and goes against the humility and quiet pride most of us live by. Far too much look at me i am in the forces and deserve speschul treatment going on nowadays, and too many people cutting around in rig, when they don't need to, saying look at me and adore me.

You don't need to be in uniform to be recognised for what you are, your bearing (stood up straight, shoulders back and purposeful stride), your smart appearance and polite manner was what used to identify to the populace what we did for a living.

Yes i do, upon occasion venture into town in uniform if i need to go to the bank etc, however i don't strut around in my uniform as many seem to and i would not dream of causing a scene over something so petty as not having my ID accepted as proof of who i am.

Back to the original question? Why on earth should supermarkets accept MOD Form 90 as a form of ID? That's not what it's for. I'm sure they don't accept similar for RN ,or RAF, or even MOD Civvies (who indeed have their own version of MOD 90).

Soldiers have never been a Master Race, nor anything special (except for certain Line Inf Regts, of course) and should not expect special treatment , even if going by this thread one or two of their supporters are certainly 'special'. And not as in 'Forces', either.
