Hi Sheldrake,

Got my LS & GC in 1968 when the qualifying time was 18 years. Remember going on parade at Catterick and receiving the medal from the Mayor of Richmond. (big deal)
As regard to the Artic Convoy Medal, don't think I would qualify for that one but am waiting for the announcement of the Catterick Star. Now that will be worth waiting for. (!!!!), s'quse me I just coughed.

Pretty rare Shelldrake to see BOTH the Victoria Cross and the Medal of Honor worn at the same time.
Would like a photo of that.

PS remember seeing a photo once of a mother who received both the VC & GC posthumously for her two deceased sons.

Well done Steve. Bit young to jack it in at 44. Some of my mates commissioned from the ranks went well into their 50's before retiring. I'm thinking of Brian Cleaver, Fred Orr, Tom Stoddart and the late Roy Lidstone. All half colonels.

Hi Jim
Most of the Denbury Boys who were commissioned went on to 55 including several Lt Cols...but know of some who were made redundant or resigned early...know of one who went to Sandhurst as a SSgt he went on to 60 as Major but able to stay on in the same job as a RO...a good friend retires from full time TA next month he joined Sep 60...so 53.5 years unbroken service for the queen...could be a record!
All the best
Steve

Hi Steve,
That's good going for a SSgt to go to Sandhurst. Probably got a late entry commission.
There was chap from AAS Harrogate from an intake around 1963, was fast tracked to Sandhurst and retired as a Major-General. - his name : John Stokoe

He did the full "rupert" course and got a regular commission and gained the "sword of honour" so not an LE as sure that's why he could go on to 60...were LEs go at 55...he must have done something special as was over the age limit of 28 for entering Sandhurst...

Trust the Yanks. This is their medal for the occupation of Germany after the war. It had clasps for Austria, Germany and the Berlin Airlift. Thinking about the Berlin Airlift, our guys and girls got nothing for that operation. Ungrateful Berliners.
