Petition Include military personal with 5 years service in criteria for Platinum Jubilee
There are plans to issue a Platinum Jubilee medal to honour Queen Elizabeth II. The criteria for the medal should include all personnel, serving or retired, who have had 5 years continuous service during Her Majesty’s reign.
Previous Jubilee medals have had a strict criteria of having to be serving on the day of the Jubilee, and completed a minimum of 5 years service. There are plenty of veterans who have serviced for 1/3 to 1/2 of Her Majesty’s reign yet are not entitled to wear the medal yet they probably served longer than most of those currently serving who will be entitled to receive the medal. The Platinum Jubilee is momentous achievement and all of Her Majesty’s forces, should receive any potential award
