'Not allowed' to accept a medal by FO

SONAR-BENDER

War Hero
Right, really sorry if there is already an Arctic Convoy thread - if so - mods please move this!

Just found this on the Wail site:

War hero who risked his life on WWII supply route told he can¿t accept medal for valour | Mail Online

Now as I (probably simplisticly) see it, this guy did the draft and now is being awarded a gong for it, albeit a tad late. Somehow the Foreign Office have found out and told him he cannot accept said gong. Well bollox to that says I!!

The reasons they give do not appear to be valid - it seems old French Vets can be given a retrospective gong, but not the Arctic Convoy Vets.

Anyone know why successive Governments have such a downer on these guys?
