We deserve medals

ON THE grounds of expense it has been stipulated that the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal will not be awarded to retired members of the armed forces.

I myself served continuously in the Royal Navy from 1937 to 1959, 18 years of which was during the Queen’s reign.

I think it is grossly unfair that we should be barred from receiving this award and I will be making representations to the Ministry of Defence accordingly; I hope that other veterans will do likewise.
