Diamond Jubilee Medal
Forum thread for campaign Diamond Jubilee Medal
“ This medal should be awarded to current and PAST serving service members ”
I have served in the Coldstream Guards and the RAMC for 8 years, 24
I missed the Silver Jubilee medal as I hadnt complete 5years service.
I wasnt in the Army for the Golden Jubillee so didnt qualify for that one.
I rejoined in 2005, served 6 years and got out 3 months before the medal is issued.
Missed all of three of them (ha,ha). Couldnt make it up could you.
I served 15 years with the RN, don`t see why those past
should be ignored after all.....we did our bit !!
I served from 1946 till 1984....but now because I am 81 years old, I am just an old Has Been
i served 12 years for my queen and country. done 2 tours of n/ireland from 1972, i Have PTSD from 1972 to present day
thats 40 years and im only given the lowest rate of Army war
pension, I lost my general service N/ireland medal and asked the Mod to replace it i was told to but a replacement medal on the internet for Â£20 what an insult.
i march past the centaph on londons remeberance day with all
the veterans who have served for there queen and country
not giving these people a veterans medal is a bloody disgrace
i received a letter saying my services where no longer required. I am still working within the ARMED forces but for the Norwegians as a civie. The funny thing is in 3 years i will get my reserve pension payed out to me so i one way i am still in the syste. How does one qualify for nay of these medals. I did get my N. Irland Medal. And Bill Griffins you are not an old has been you just like us are like a good wine it taste better with age.
before "D" Day.A Diamond Jubilee medal would be very much appreciated and would be a companion to my four years of service medal in the British Red Cross.
Should receive all three commerative medals.We all served during her reign,that is enough Qualification.

the comments make very interesting reading and i agree with you all
especially regarding the widows of sevicemen well done john rogers
lets hope someone is listening !
As an ex member of the Coldstream Guards 1971-1978 i feel that all veterans should recieve the medal unlike the Silver Jubillee medal which was given to a select few
