    Hi guys,

    I thought i would bring this to your attention as i think it warrants as wider audience as possible.

    'We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to pass a new
    law making it illegal to impersonate, misrepresent, or falsify
    connections (past or present) with HM Forces including the
    wearing of uniforms complete or in part and the adorning of
    medals awarded either for campaign service, long service and
    services of distinction for which they are not entitled.
    Further to this and in particular, we would request that the
    government consider making it a criminal offence for those who
    aspire to make personal or corporate financial gain from such
    acts of fraudulent deceit.'


    It is something over looked and needs to be addressed.

    Here is the link: Petition to: pass a new law making it illegal to impersonate, misrepresent, or falsify connections (past or present) with HM Forces including the wearing of uniforms complete or in part and the adorning of medals awarded either for campaign service,

    And also a video that accompanies the petition: YouTube - Stolen Honour

    I know we have forces/ ex forces on here and the support would be appreciated. Also read the small print...Re-enactors are welcome! ....

    Regards, Donnie.

    I think some of this is indeed already covered by Law, but the cause is good.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    Hi Paul,
    Hows things? good i hope . If those tubes in parliment gave a toss we might get somewhere. One eyed Broon is a moron and maybe more pressure etc might stir him to do something about it.

    Guys, the cause is good, but the devil is in the details. Be careful what you wish for!

    This is the type of movement that made the buying and selling of the Medal of Honor illegal here in the US with the result of many of them being sold overseas. Unless of course it is already illegal for a private individual to buy and sell a VC, in which case it may not matter.

    The Stolen Valor Act is the US version of this. Once again the cause is good but the knee jerk reaction caused eBay to remove the sales of many medals such as Purple Hearts and Silver Stars that were not even banned by the Federal government.

    Good luck with this! Of course you are betting that your lawmakers are reasonable, sensible and would limit themselves to what you have laid out in your petition.

    Signed

    some little shits over here went round doors pretending to be members of the Army Cadet Force collecting money for something or other, they got caught when they were stupid enough to go to a soldiers door who realised that the kit one of them was wearing was a Dutch DPM jacket.

    Thanks
