Arctic Medals

The government has announced that medals will be given to the heroes of the Arctic Convoys - 70 years after the event. Well deserved!!

Re: Arctic Medals

And about time !
I Think the same situation occurred with Bomber command.
These people were carrying out orders (no choice about it) but the various governments were full of excuses of why they should not get medals, this is in contrast to a number of people who have been given medals and Knighted only for it to be shown later they should have been in Jail for fiddling expenses or even worse crimes.
