In reality we were awarded it for bravery under fire. We were playing for the Drum Major's mace tossing competition when we found ourselves having to take avoiding action. John Baillie and Dougald Robertson were 'volunteered' to play the party receiving awards to the Royal Box from the Secretary's Tent and back again. To date they are still awaiting their 'By Appointment' insignia.
