My dad has been in the RAF for 24 years and is now teaching in Cosford.One of the medals is for spending Twentyeight days in Northen Ireland,another one is for the Queens 50th anniversary which is also called the golden jubilee because it's golden,another one is for spending three years in Northen Ireland,another one is for long services and good conduct and the last one is for services in Iraq.My dad has beento Iraq about 4 times but the exact town is top secret.He was very proud getting the medals and being recognised for the jobs he has done.The Northen Ireland badges were also special because that was where I was born so it also tells me how long I've been there.My dad has taught me a lot of history about his badges.They are very precious to my dad because they show off his talents and his acheivments so it is very precious to me.
