This day 60 years ago I was on draft and Orderly Cpl at the then Depot Regt, Pocklington .. I can remember the RSM coming into the Guard Room and telling us to put the flag at half staff as King George had died .. served the Queen until 1966, took part in the Munster Garrison Coronation Parade ... 'can I have a medal please' ... there are to be 60,000 Jubilee medals distributed in Canada to politicians, news readers, sports personalities, singers, actors etc .. all who are bloody well paid for what they do ..

Totally agree Len, but since when did the people at the grass roots, or the men on the ground actually doing the job get the praise (or medals) silent

Hi Len,

I agree with you. I served HM for 20 years, so why in heavens are all the proposed celebs, council staff, civil servants etc going to be awarded the medal when a lot of them have done nothing to earn this award. Bah! it makes me sick with rage.

For what its worth, I was in my last term at Harrogate when the King died. Remember all the officers wore a black arm band and the King's portrait in the NAAFI was draped with black ribbon.

Len, Prior-Palmer name rings a bell but I cannot say I ever run across him. I wonder if he ever had a relative in the old 7th Queen's Own Hussars. I know the CO's name when Iwas with them was Llewellyn-Palmer
