At last at least one of our members has stood up to be counted....the problem of retrospective medals is beset with difficulty and has always been a problem..
Our member wrote to to the Royal British Legion and their letter of reply is very helpful.
The MoD are considering other claims for retrospective medals. The letter states the Legion is broadly supportive of such campaigns but they are best conducted by the people who served as was in the case of the Canal Zone medal which is now recognised by a clasp on the GSM 1918-62.
