Arctic Veterans

SONAR-BENDER

War Hero
Just found this - OK, it's the Wail, but still true. Doesn't really affect me, as my old dad who is long gone and would have earned it, but never had any of his other medals mounted. So this one would just have stayed in the box too.


But........ wtf is going on here? It seems like an 'Establishment' ganging up and resolutely refusing to recognise these Vets, but why? Possibly a bit like Bomber Command?


Anyway, more on the story here: Arctic convoys: Fury as veterans denied Russian bravery medal for their role in perilous World War II campaign | Mail Online
