To stop the Selling and Distribution of the Veterans Badge to the un authorised
This petition had 49 supporters
The Armed Forces Veterans badge is supplied free of charge to all ex service personnel throughout the U.K . It is meant solely for ex forces only and has to be applied for using a form that requests your basic service information
I have noticed that there are a number of retailers and suppliers on internet sites also selling the same badge to anyone who is willing to buy them
This badge has become the accepted form of identification for companies providing free or reduced rates for ex forces during Poppy Day and Armed Forces Day Events and anyone wearing one who is not ex armed forces is in my opinion obtaining goods or services under false pretenses, which is a criminal offense .
I intend to make an application to Trading Standards that the sale of such badges falls in to the category of selling counterfeit goods and possibly breach of copyright of the emblem .
