Veterans receive newly created medals after 60 years


Sixty-five veterans of the Arctic Convoys and Bomber Command have been presented with two newly created campaign decorations by the Prime Minister in Downing Street.

The men, who are in all in their 80s and 90s, received either the Arctic Star medal or the Bomber Command clasp.

The move follows a campaign to get the veterans recognised.
