This thread is about those who served on the arctic convoys, which has relevance here.
The attrocities committed by ALL sides (Allies, Axis, Russia or Japan) in the war have no relevance.

Very intersting site:
http://www.veterans-uk.info/medals/russian.html

It also contains information for personel who may be eligible for the previously approved Russian Medal

I thought that the Government was to issue an Alantic Convoy medal

along with those from Bomber Command who had been "forgotten" after the war

DickyD's wife has signed.  Richard's grandfather was given a Russian medal during the first war world, so I cannot understand why these men cannot have them.
