If I could, I would wear my unit awards above my personal ones any day of the week. It's not about you, remember?

Aussies like Brits tend to be pretty sparse with medals. Unlike the Canadians and Brits, we're not even doing the Diamond Jubilee for Queenie... although strangely enough the civilians seem to be the only ones upset about that.

I have a solitary Australian Defence Medal (or ADM) for 4 years or more effective service (I think I have 8 or so effective racked up). We call it the 'Thanks for Coming' medal, or the 'Coke Gong' as it's red with black/white trim just like a Coke can.

Not only getting the Diamond Jubilee medal this year, to keep the Gold Jubilee medal company, but I am also getting my Long Service and Good Conduct, well, Long Service medal too

Just need a dress uniform to wear them on.

As they say during presentation, "Awarded for 12 years years of undetected crime."

No doubt I'm entitled to some, but I've never even bothered to inquire what they are.

Every year I turn out for Anzac Day and someone usually asks, to which I reply along the lines of, "They'll make me no richer, nor my life any happier, and I have no need or desire to impress anyone, so what's the fuss"?

Trooper is the chap behind you Royal Anglians? Or angle irons as we use to call them.

I was issued a marksman's badge in the RAF on the old 303, and another in the TA on the L1A1. I have no idea if I am entitled to any "gongs" I can't be bothered to find out, besides which, trying to get medals out of the British military is akin to getting blood out of a stone.

A chap was being awarded a GSM (General Service Medal) and was asked if he wanted a parade, like a berk he said yes. After the parade he ended up with his head down the toilet. His mates were really annoyed. lol

He is indeed an Amoured Farmer!
We would chant: "I can't read, and I can't write, but that don't really matter, coz I'm a Royal Anglian, and I can drive my tractor"
In a really bad Norfolk accent.

When I got presented with the Golden Jubilee medal, I was called in the office and had the box lobbed at me with an "cop this"
As I'm due a double this year there is talk of a ceremony, but I'm really interested.
