    Unless the Queen were based in Balmoral, it would seem rather a long journey for a 90 year old monarch to have to make, especially given that she is scaling down her public engagements and delegating more to William and Harry with their military careers.

    It would have been more prudent for the soldiers on recovery to have visited Buckingham Palace and received their medals there.

      I've never been in the military so maybe I've missed something, but is it really common practice to pin a medal on someone's bum, regardless of their condition or the location of their affliction?

      There is no real specific treatment for tonsillitis, which is mainly dealt with by paracetamol and fluids. Very unlikely to require hospitalisation unless for surgery. I wonder if Soldier 3 actually had some other ailment requiring the wire brush? - in which case he is deliberately misleading our Majesty, as well as being rude and disrespectful in front of her. In which case it is perfectly proper that she didn't give him a medal - court martial would be far more appropriate!

      If this is true reflection of the state of the devolved NHS in Scotland... I am pretty sure we are better off without them!

      It's depressing to think of our brave boys having such limited access to decent medical treatment.

      Enough of this foreign aid nonsense, let's look after our own.


      does anyone have any pictures of dogs in fancy dress to lighten the mood?

      I've checked the NICE guidelines on the prescribed treatments for the diseases and disorders mentioned and you're wrong on all three counts!

      ...........and why didn't the third soldier get a medal?
      Yes. Why didn't the third soldier get a medal? If anybody knows, please could they post on here?

      I'm concerned Her Majesty is awarding medals for no good reason. Does being in hospital with genital warts qualify these days? Surely more deserving acts of bravery in our armed forces.

      Having attended a military hospital suffering from an STD,a medal is very appropriate!

      It might have been in the next ward, which was dealing with actual combat injuries, where one soldier informed the Queen that he had been shot up the backside.
      "Rectum?" asked the Queen.
      "No, just missed 'em" came the reply.
