Were the MPs and Lords on the JFET? I’m assuming they were the cadets seem to think they were.
It is an interesting point My understanding from speaking to a few regulars is that the MOD have been given a directive to be as flexible as possible with the definition of “contributory service” For every MOD eligible category seemed to be a easy win for morale purpose so that might help get the cadets part over the line.
Do tell us how the cadet got the KCM. Only ones I can think of that have has it officially confirmed & delivered is the one or two RBL Banner bearers who are also cadets but attended in a legion capacity.
Ahh understand now If that was part of the large group of cadets I had one of my cadets doing the same role but they haven’t formally been told yet their getting it although it seems to be unofficially the case. I thought you had already had someone that had formally been told/received the medal
Highly recommend. Very light, very stiff, black in colour.
Looks amazing when finished. Sorry I can’t be more specific. If you contact the tailor who does the light blue bases like Waddington (Illyas Bhatti, if memory serves) and get a medal mounted, it’ll show you what he’s using, assuming he’s still at it these days.
Looks easier to cut to the size you require too.
Failing that, PM me your address and I’ll send you an old miniature rack I still have somewhere, so you can see what it is.
