The Pacific Star

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThe Pacific Star was a campaign medal of the British Commonwealth, awarded for service in World War II. It was also awarded to certain foreign servicemen, such as Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz of the United States. And also, by the way, George Johnson, my Grandfather.

I have two of these medals.
