Proud to have served...

I think I have told you before that I was once in the British Army serving as a nurse. Yesterday I got a package in the post in my maiden name. My veterans badge.

                       I am proud to have served in the army... 
                                   Hope you are all well    Carol x

We didn't know you had served, or didn't remember.

Is the badge meant to be worn on Remembrance Day only, or can it be worn at other times? Just curious!

Purrs and peace,
Nicki and Derry

It can be worn all the time not just on remembrance day.

Congratulations, dear friend. We are so very proud of you and your service to your country. It's a beautiful badge. We're sure your
patients will be additionally honoured
by your care knowing you served.
My mum ( Gran) was a nurse in WW
II and wanted to nurse combat
wounded. Instead she got an
assignment nursing officer's wives.
Needless to say, she didn't re-up.
