PostSubject: ID Cards   29/1/2012, 09:36

A few years ago I joined the British Army Veterans Recognition card, Assoc... You give em your details and a passport photo and they send you an ID card, there is a fee but the benefits can outway the fee if you use it regualy. I take the family to the USA every year for hols and it has saved me a fortune, last year I worked out a saving of around £250, most places out there from shops to parks and some car hire companys restraunts etc. will give Veterans a Generous discount or even free admition. In the UK I use it to book some flights, airport parkin some shops like the outdoor life shops, and have even negoteated a discount at a couple of pubs when we have been out for a meal.
Just thought I would let you Know about it in case anyone is interested, you can find the address on the internet thingy.

I still have the original cardboard ID Card that I was issued in 1962 as a Boy Soldier, amazingly I bear an uncanny resemblance to the photograph, bit like Dorian Gray without the debauchery. Very Happy

In one of my former lives I was a Regimental Clerk, when the new plasic ID cards were issued all the old ones were handed in and stored in RHQ ready to be burnt, that's when I performed the "Switcheroo". Cool

Had a scaly (RC Sigs type) in the 70's filling in on a gun crew (Ack Ack) in Lahr. Conversation with the Master Gunner from Ottawa went like this, " Get that fxxxin sigs type off my guns". End of conversation. It was demo of air defense capabilities with WW 2 RCN bofors for air defense of the Canadian Air Bases. Nothing but the best museum pieces for the Canadian Army

But then back in the 60's I drove around for 3 or 4 days in a 2 1/2 ton hauling an Honest John rocket motor all around, so I guess we scaly's are flexible

I was discharged locally in Germany and had to hand back my ID card on my final day, in Germany they introduced a 'Veterans Installation Pass' which allows access to barracks and NAAFI about two years ago, I've just re-applied for my renewal.
