Government supports ‘Awards for Valour (Protection)’ Bill

 

The ‘Awards for Valour (Protection)’ Bill will make it a crime for anyone to pose as a military veteran and deceive others by wearing honour or gallantry medals that they have not earned.

 

New proposals will make it a crime for anyone to pose as a military veteran by wearing medals, awarded by the nation, that they have not earned themselves.

Good, and a shame they don't extend the law to include discrimination against service personell and make the selling of medals illegal. I have some idea of what my father and grandfather went through in two world wars and I shall always be grateful to them and all the others who gave and continue to give service.

If I remember correctly, on special occasions you could wear your relatives medals on the right side of the blazer or uniform and this has been the guideline by the military for many years. So how can it now be criminalised?

you miss the point many Walter Mitty!s have been joining in parades for ex servicemen & women under false pretenses, wear Fathers/grandfathers/husband medals on the right is not the problem, but the idiots who live in a dream world and belonging to the Royal Stand Backs.

I do not miss the point and understand it completely. How will they seperate the Walter Mittys' from the real people? Does the new legislation specifically state that medals can be worn on the right breast by relatives otherwise those relatvies will be committing an offence? I would wear my medals on the left and my grandfather's and father's WW medals on my right breast, but would I now be commiting an offence?

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-supports-awards-for-valour-protection-bill Might be a helpful link to resolve this. Quoting from the link "The Bill rightly protects family members wearing relative’s medals as a sign of respect and theatrical, TV or film productions." So there should be no problem.
