    Hi Donnie,
    Well i think it is a good thing for Vets to be recognized, a lot of guys put good time in and have nothing to show for it at times.
    And some in this country dont appreciate our forces weather it be any one of the three, so its about time we got something for our efforts. Have you gone back to the rifles ?, well done and take
    care of your self,
    Dave.

    They are a good thing for all Britians Vets , if you are prepared to stand on the wall with your head above the parapet in any era you deserve some sort of recognition

    Hi Paul,
    They are doing the British Forces Day on the 12st down this end
    with the band and bugles, military vehicle shows ect, and the presentation of badges to Vets. So it will be good to see some old mates after years and get together.

    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?
