Hello everyone,

I've been wearing an officers navy blue lanyard at events with my BD uniform and nearly every time I go some kind soul comes up and says (and sometimes not in a helpful way) that I'm wearing it on the wrong side. Do any of you know which side it should be worn and why ? I've read on t'internet a number of explanations. So far I've worn it mostly on the left as per the majority of other reenactors and that has gotten the least "comments" about it but it's getting to the point now where I'm going to take it off and strangle the next person.... :lol:

Thanks everyone
