I'm sure there must be readers on these pages that served their time in Malaya/Singapore/Borneo and Brunei between 1957-1966. If you did serve here are you aware that the Queen has authorised the receipt of a medal awarded to 35000 ex Vets via The Malaysian Government but has refused (on advice) for those recipients not to 'officially' wear the PJM Medal
A campaign has been set up to overturn this silly rule (Yes the ANZACs can wear the medal without restriction)today Dame Vera Lynn and many others have given their support to us.
A dedicated Website here gives all the details
Can we rely on your support please?
HM The Queen has now asked the PM Blair to sort things out with the PJM medal, that is from a reply from Buckingham Palace today from one of our campaigners
I thought that Dame Vera Lynne was missing in action. Last heard visiting Japanese fishing vessels in the southern pacific ocean - singing "Whale meat again" !!!
Jeez Ron, even by your standards.....thats bloody awful, must have been 30 years since I heard that one.....
You must remember lads that Ron is on the other side of the world and things take longer to get there. The jokes have to travel with the immigrant and prison ships before getting unloaded and then changed into Oz language and finally taken round the country by their best comedian...."Skippy" !!!!!!
