    If you were awarded a gong for your service dont you think that should be enough? infact let me rephrase that, when in normal civilian dress the badge should be worn but on parades if you are wearing medals the badge should not be worn.........thats what i think?

    Don't think it matters when you wear it mate , if you served you deserve it and wear it when you want with medals or without.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Three Durham Light Infantry Vets . Tommy Wilson, Frankie Grant and Dickie Atkinson at Lingevres on 7/6/2009 with the hedgeline full of MG42's they assaulted on 14/6/1944 in the background

    All have got plenty of gongs but still wear there vet badge and many other badges/medals awarded in Normandy and elsewhere, to them it;s as important as the gongs so wear it on parade or anywhere you want that's my take on it

    cheers

    Paul

    hi Paul,
    Heres to Tom, Frank and Dick, they look very proud, and for what they went through they deserve every honor.

    Hi Paul,
    Yes i think you are right, I think when we meet our old mates who
    know what its all about we all think we are twenty again.
    I bet those three are good old boys, My dad was very proud
    of serving in the army, he wa a cpl, in the Royal Artillery wounded twice in ww2, But we lost him back in 72, still miss him loads,
    Bless them all.
    Dave.
