    No, wikipedia was the quickest source of reference available, as is so often the case. Please note I also used the Medal Yearbook as a source. If you would not lower yourself to wear it that is fine. But I do not see the point in undermining it, I think a simple "nice medal" would have sufficed

    i dont in any way endermine it ,,i just point out that ,,the campaign medals are allready there ,,so this medal is a bit meaningless
    just look at the british legion medals that are ass meaningless and you will under stand what i meen

    sorry guys i just dont see it as a medal that is worth any thing to any soldier
    it makes no sence and it makes no pride

    I agree with you there. I had a look through their brochure once for a relative who did National Service, some fairly random stuff in there.

    every serving soldier was issued with the JUBELEE medal ,,there is a Belize service medal and a BOAR service medal ,, AND ??? lets not gat carried away here ,, every campaign the british army has ever been in ,,has its own medal ,,unless it was a denied job ,, so what and why is this all about as i said yes it is an official medal ,,but you show me one persone who would wear it ,,any one who has nbeen there and done it ,would baulk at the thought ,, this is the medal for clerks and REMFS , i know a lot of you wont want to read what i have said ,, it is not a medal that any soldier that i know would ever wear ,,the campaign medals YES , but not this meaningless thing
