The Queen's Jubilee 2022

Her Majesty The Queen will mark 70 years as our sovereign on 6 Feb 22.

Not even the faintest whisper of how this might be celebrated.

Any hints????????????

Apart from this whisper ...... BBC Article

In keeping with tradition established with previous royal milestones, a Platinum Jubilee medal will be awarded to people who work in public service, including representatives of the Armed Forces, the emergency services and the prison services.


So plans are afoot !

Will we be seeing any kind of flypast in the current climate?

I'm old enough to remember (just) my father coming home with the sad news that the King had died. Long Live the Queen.

Well, that gives me almost a whole year to rummage about in the loft to see if I can unearth my 1977 adornment and give it a polish to celebrate the occasion!

Another ornament neither of us will get. Both missed all the other Jubblys and the non-retrospective LSGC. Are we bovvered?

At least we have both our ancestors’ hard-earned medals from WW2, WW1 and indeed the 19th Century when they actually did something rather more than just draw their pay.

I think whilst she's harbouring a paedophile we should lay off the celebrations.

Bloomin Eck! Got my Silver Jubilee gift at school the year before I put Betty's blue uniform on. Worse than that, until recently I would wander around London, marvelling at how fresh The Jubilee Walk plaques looked alongside the piss stained and chewing gum ridden footpaths of our fair capital city.

A nice thread spoiled. And a A MODERATOR needs to delete this post.
The US authorities need to speak to a family member about dealings with Jeffrey E, nothing more.

You're possibly cold war era, I take it? So you're also missing the Iraq campaign medal and Operational Service Medal with Afghanistan clasp, for example? People who served in the 2000s and 2010s haven't been simply drawing pay and those campaign awards (and others) were usually hard earned too. Your comment is in poor taste.

Apologies for ruffling your feathers. My post was (I had hoped) obviously focused on non-operational medals. The proposition for "medals for everyone" is indeed traditional, with Coronation and Jubilee medals dating back to the reign of Queen Victoria. I was just observing that my wife and I managed a joint 55 years RAF service without being eligible for any of them!

I am of course well aware of what has been happening in the last 4 decades, where numerous friends and acquaintances have been intimately involved in conflicts ... from Op Corporate onwards. To my regret I was never given the opportunity to be involved in-theatre, unlike my antecedents.
