Kiwiussr's fabulous claim.

just thought I would start a interesting thread in regards to see if any memebers of this fourm have served in the military (which I feel many have) and see if they want to share their own medals with the fourm. \Thought it could be interesting as we all have a love of collecting and would be cool to see what awards we have all been awarded for any military service

Yup, there was such thread. If any of the members or moderators could relocate us I´d be so thankful. I really want to read that thread again.

Re: members decorations and medals

Multiple mentions in dispatches very nice! I hope they're not for bankruptcy! I knew a Kiwi Sailor from the Korean War who got a MID because his AA jammed and he couldn't stop firing it during an attack even though he didn't want to be on it at the time.

kiwi

what is the UN medal for?

I was in service, but the only one medal I supposed to have I just didn't attend the ceremony to get. That time I radically have changed my opinion about some issues

Re: members decorations and medals

I've never turned up to any sort of award ceremony either. The only two awards I had now I received by proxy as they were given to someone else to pass on to me. Of course when the Queen demands I can't say no! Like Bill Clinton says 90% of life is just "turning up".

Quite impressive KiwiUSSR, quite impressive.

All of us would be ashamed to even try to follow that!
