Opinion
Allan Campbell – Thursday November 18, 2021

Concept of battle prizes is probably as old as mankind, and medals are still an important feature of armed forces activity world-wide. Remembrance Sunday probably features the UK’s biggest annual display of medals, worn as evidence of experience rather than celebration. Although my father and his three brothers all earned medals in the Second World War, I have no recollection of their ever wearing these, and the Remembrance Sunday display always reminds me of the powerful sentiment I heard from a Highland veteran who won distinction in the Second World War: ‘Baubles! I threw them away! Why would I be proud of killing other people?’
