1939-1945 Star, World War II Medal

Original World War II service medal, now over 70 years old.
£29.50

Atlantic Star, World War II Medal

This is in our opinion one of the Rarest of the World War II Stars. The Atlantic Star was instituted in May of 1945 to honour those who took place in the Battle of the Atlantic. It was mainly for those who were part of shipping convoys, a mission that many did not come back from. It was also for those who were their escorts and anti-submarine people. We've handled many World War II medals, but this is the first group of Atlantic Stars that we've had the privilege to offer. Complete with ribbon, for those brave sailors who fought against the U-boats. It is rare and teaches one humility.

Burma Star, World War II Medal

Of the eight different campaign stars awarded during the Second World War two of the scarcer issues are the Pacific Star and the Burma Star. We are able to offer a small quantity of The Burma Star, which was awarded for operational service in the Burma campaign and in Bengal or Assam, broadly from 1941 to early 1944. We have just seven of these scarce campaign stars with the appropriate ribbon available, so don't miss out!

Pair of World War II Medals

The ‚War Medal’ has the crowned bust of King George VI and the green, black and orange ribbon. The second medal is The ‚Defence Medal’ with the bare head of the King and the red, white and blue ribbon. The colours on the Defence Medal ribbons mean quite a lot, we were told as follows: Green is for the green fields of England, Orange represents burning during the Blitz and Black for the German Swastika.

World War II Defence Medal

World War II Defence Medal. The Defence Medal was issued to members of the armed forces serving at home and in territories overseas that were subjected to air attack or closely threatened during the Second World War. Also included were members of the Home Guard (Dad’s Army), Civil Defence and Fire Service. On the obverse is a profile portrait of King George VI. On the reverse two Lions supporting a crowned Oak tree with the dates 1939/1945 and the legend ‘The Defence Medal’. The colours on the ribbon are rather interesting and appropriate: The two broad green stripes represent ‘This green and pleasant land’, the narrow black stripes represent ‘the Blackout’ imposed during the air raids of the Blitz and the wide orange stripe represents the firebombing during the Blitz. A medal issued 72 years ago that is becoming harder to find. A very interesting addition to your collection.
