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.

At the end of World War II the Government awarded what is known as the 1939-1945 Star.

It is a star with cipher of King George VI in the middle and the legend 1939-1945 Star below. It has a light blue, red and dark blue ribbon and today is over 70 years old. We bought a nice group of these and are proud to be able to offer them to you. These were men and women who put their life on the line to make sure that you and I could live a free life. They are original and genuine and now over 70 years old.
