The 1939-1945 War Medal

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThe War Medal 1939–1945 was a British decoration awarded to those who had served in the Armed Forces or Merchant Navy full-time for at least 28 days between 3 September 1939 and 2 September 1945.

In the Merchant Navy, the 28 days must have been served at sea.

It is sometimes described as the “Victory Medal” for World War II, although that is not its correct name. Generally these things are unnamed but I have a one orphan that is named.

For those of you hunting down sets it is as follows, 1220764 N.K. Mohd AJAIB.

I otherwise have a trunkful of these.
