"it was not envisaged that permission would be given for any future anniversary medals issued by foreign or Commonwealth Governments to be accepted and worn by British citizens where they related to services wholly rendered more than five years prior to the proposal to make the award."

"does not recognise awards that commemorate an anniversary where permission has already been granted to receive and wear an award for an earlier anniversary of the same event."

Jubilee medals excepted of course!.

I see they applied the non existent "five year rule" again and backed it up with the double medal-ling rule, smooth if predictable.

Shelldrake,

Like the teabag avatar. I see that Anthony Worrell (pictured on the front) is in the news for all the wrong reasons in connection with his local branch of Tesco - Henly on Thames.

Secondly, mentioning tea I got onto NAAFI the other day to buy one of their little packs of tea & a commemerative mug and was told that NAAFI tea is now owned by Ringtons and they do not do the mugs anymore. What's the world coming to.

Hi Shelldrake,

I think I will give it a miss for a couple of years. We did two years on the trot - 2010 & 2011.
Going to Washington DC with one of my Sons in March (been a couple of times before). Although we will have a look around Arlington, Smithsonian etc, we are going to vist the West Point Academy. A bit of a drive (266 miles from DC) but we will stay the night in a local motel. Going to see the grave of Custer and one or two other notables. Also in the museum they have Goering's Reich-Marshal Baton etc. Also going to visit Gettysberg.
So its not long now. Will have to make it up to the wife by going somewhere for the Summer.

I know this is 'off topic' but is anyone else using a Mac and having a problem logging on. For about the past hour when I attempt to log on I get a Microsoft message telling me I must now use Firefox as the browser on this site. I keep far away from Windows as I possibly can. To post this I had to go back into my machines 'history' and review an older post, then access the forum that way. All my other sites are working 'A OK' using Mac Safari.

What do you think the problem was Ciphers ? I use the ordinary Google running under IE 7.
Incidentally, I have just bought a new laptop having saved up some pennies. Its an HP and Currys/PC world had a sale on over Christmas. Gone for a Core i5 with Windows 7 64 bit, so its a bit faster thatn myold one.

I too had problems similar to Cyphers when I attempted to log in at about 1745Z.

Got straight in this time, hope our far eastern friend who attempts to sell t shirts on this site from time to time had not hacked in.

Not sure what the problem was Jimsigs .. but every time I tried to access the page I was redirected to a Windows Microsoft page telling me to download Firefox. I'm a dyed in the wool Mac user, used to have Windows eons ago but once I tried a Mac there was no going back.
I'm currently using a 27" Mac with 2.7ghz Intel Core i5 with 4gb 1333 mghz memory .. suits me fine.
Also have a Mac Probook Laptop and i Touch ( geek obviously) .. her upstairs has a 21 Mac her first computer, loves it.
ps . we also have a Sheltie, he says he wants an iPawd ...

Saw your post about your planned trip to Washington, DC. Hope the timing is right for the Spring blossom time in DC. Been there a couple of times but did not see Herman's celebrated baton at the Smithsonian. A long time ago I saw his armored Mercedes at the War Museum in Ottawa, one inch glass in the windows. Also remember that it had many coats of paint, green when he was using it for a Luftwaffe do and black when it was used for a state occasion. Don't know if it is still there. You must also be an American Civil War buff if you are going to Gettysburg, the "high water mark of the Confederacy." My wife and I used to drive to Florida and take side trips on the way down and back. Think we saw every Civil War battlefield east of the Mississippi River. My favorite site was the Battle at Chickamauga at Chattanooga, Tenn; "the battle in the clouds," it was called. Once had to give a tutorial on a civil war battle in an elective course in American history. Picked Stonewall Jackson's Shenandoah Valley Campaign. Hope the Cyclorama is open for you at Gettysburg; it has been under repair.
Have a good trip

A few years ago I researched my Family history and discovered that a distant relative of mine had been killed at the Battle of the Little Big Horn. He wasn't actually involved in the battle, he had been camping in the next field and went over to complain about the noise. Neutral
