The latest round of operational awards has been published in the newpapers, and indeed Soldier magazine. In addition, the New Years honours list was (obviously!) recently published. You've probably guessed why I mention this. I find it difficult to believe that no members of God's Corps has done anything worthy of recognition, given the operational tempo of the last year. If there are some Int Corps who I didn't notice, i apologise, but I don't think as a Corps we will be bothering the tailor's shop too much over the next month. Far more likely is that other Regiments and Corps are simply much better and willing to nominate their people. Is the staff work too difficult for our Officers? Can't be arsed? Too shy? Perhaps it didn't occur to you? I would be intrerested in thoughts, but please note that I did not post this because I am bitter! Honest! I can guarantee you that I have done nothing medal-worthy this year, but I do like to see hard work rewarded, particulalry from the juniors, and a trip to the palace is a nice day out for Mom.
