World War II Africa Star

During and after World War II the Government issued a series of Stars to honour the gallant heroes who fought in the different theatres of the war. Comes with a ribbon that is unique to the award. Offered here is the Africa medal. Remember these are the actual medals that were awarded and NOT reproductions. We feel honoured to be able to offer these medals in the form of stars and hope that those of you who buy one or more will feel the same. All come with the official ribbons and all are in nice collectable condition, but supplies are limited. Don’t forget they were issued some 70 plus years ago.

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!

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.

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.
