Check out the peak on General Sir Nick Parkers hat. Only one row of scrambled egg. Normally in keeping for a Col/Brig but not a General's Hat

Can anyone identify the medal, half hidden on the extreme right of the picture ?

Brum,

It's almost certain that the medal is the US Legion of Merit.

General Sir Nick Parker was awarded the American Legion of Merit "in recognition of gallant and distinguished services during coalition operations in Afghanistan" in 2007.

Also, further info, the badge on his cross belt is that of The Royal Green Jackets of which he was commissioned into in 1974.

Gordon,

I dug this out on the internet :

AGAI Vol 2 Chap 68: (Army General Administration Instructions)

'Service personnel may only wear, on uniform or civilian clothes, Medals that have been awarded to them or approved for them to wear by HM The Queen. Crown servants in uniform may not wear any Medal or Decoration whose wear has not been authorised by HM The Queen. This includes foreign Medals and Decorations and unofficial Medals that are sold by medal dealers and manufacturers.'

So, I would think the US Legion of Merit has been given the approval to wear by British servicemen & women.

Have a look at FM Montgomery's medal ribbons, especially the foreign ones and their descriptions etc at

John Boy,

Saw his grave in Arlington when last at Washington DC. Seemingly, he was in a US plane in the Far East when the plane crashed. All the occupants being American servicemen, except Major general Wingate were buried at Arlington.

My late x father in law fought along side the Chindits while in Burma told me some stories I can tell you make your hair curl lol!



An Uncle of mine was a Prisoner during the War - he was in Barlinnie.

He was originally sentenced to death but was reprieved by, a then, Conservative Government. So we blamed them for that as well.

You are so right Brum. These people are not trained for the job. Why don't they have course for How to become a Chancellor of the Exchequer or Home Secretary etc. All seems to be done by trial & error. Fancy the country is run by chancers.
