Hi Just seen the BBC news. The Arctic Convoy Medal is due out next month (March 2013) for surviving veterans and the families of deceased veterans, involved in the Russian Convoys of WW2. My late father, John Richards then 20, was in the Arctic Convoys (which I have mentioned in previous posts) so I'm pleased that he and the rest of the veterans are finally getting the recognition they deserve. Great news for the Arctic Convoy Heroes. You have not been forgotten! Alex Devaney.
