in reply to Alan Hargreaves’ letter,
Can I point out that all service personnel, police and prison officers etc have to be serving and have served five years before they qualify for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal.
I am a veteran and I for one do not feel I need this medal, I would much rather this money be spent on our serving personnel making sure they have the best equipment available.
Under the current circumstances I feel this would be money better spent. Me getting a medal because I am a veteran is a nice to have, not a necessity.
