Pewter Miniature Atlantic Star Campaign Medal with ribbon.
Issued to commemorate the Battle of the Atlantic, this star was awarded to the Royal Navy for six months afloat between 3rd September 1939 and 8th May 1945 in the Atlantic or home waters and for the personnel employed in the convoys to North Russia and the South Atlantic. Merchant Navy personnel also qualified as did RAF and Army (air crews and maritime gunners) who served afloat or operated over the designated waters.
If a recipient also qualified for the France and Germany Star or Air Crew Europe Star, then a bar with that title would be worn on the ribbon.
