Hi to Mzee 796

Just seen post. Read with interest how brave your Great Grandfather and Great Uncle were on the Russian
Convoys of WW2, and the sad loss of your Great Uncle in the convoys at 16. Very brave men and heroes we should not forget. Your very fortunate to still have your relatives log books, letter and other information, regarding their service in WW2.

Dear Alex

I work at the Registry of Shipping and Seamen (RSS) in Cardiff and we have received several enquiries today about the application process for the Arctic Convoy Star. I thought it would be worthwhile responding to your 'post' to expand on the information already provided by you to assist our veterans with the process.

RSS has the responsibility for issuing World War II campaign medals to Merchant Navy veterans only. Application forms for the Arctic Convoy Star can be downloaded from www.veterans-uk.info. Applications will be handled by both the MOD Medal Office and RSS, depending on whether an individual has already been issued with the Arctic Emblem.

Records relating to the issue of the Arctic Emblem are held by the MOD Medal Office. For this reason they will handle applications from ALL recipients (Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and the Merchant Navy) of the Arctic Emblem for the Arctic Convoy Medal.

If Merchant Navy veterans have already been issued with their World War II campaign medals and are requesting a re-assessment for the new Arctic Convoy medal then they should apply to Cardiff. Similarly, if the application is for the first issue of World War II medals for Merchant Navy service, the Arctic Convoy Star will now be a normal part of the assessment process and again, applications should come to Cardiff.

Any veterans of the Royal Navy, Army or Royal Air Force should apply to The MOD Medal Office, Imjin Barracks, Innsworth, Gloucester, GL3 1HW. The MOD have a local rate helpline: 08457 800 900. THe contact details for RSS have been helpfully provided in your 'post'.

I hope that this enables all veterans to direct their applications in the right area. I understand that with new procedures it can be tricky at the start to get things moving in the right direction.

Kind regards
Denise
