Rog I hope you know that is not what I meant eh, England Rugby gongs for winning a cup in a highly paid sport !Cricket for winning in a highly paid sport both of their choices mind! Now if you didn't get what I meant then my dad was lucky then to get his DFM for sitting in the arse end of a Lancaster doing night raids over Germany or any gongs handed out to his SEVEN brothers all in different theatres of war in WW2.

@Jules

its ok, knew exactly what you meant so absolutely zero offence taken in any way ref my gongs. I genuinely don't feel I deserved them when compared to others

any WW2 (and other campaigns ) medals gained were hard earned, well deserved and have my ultimate respect. Ive been in the Lancaster at RAF Cosford air museum near where I was born. Really really really not my cup of tea Bow down

I totally agree on undeserved knighthoods etc for sports stars, or actors etc. although some of them do a lot for charity and other causes that doesn't always get advertised. 2011 D4 XS 8 speed - Orkney Grey, 2014 front end facelift, black pack, rear camera, 4x4 info, timed climate
