Prime Minister announces medals for Arctic convoys veterans

Great News

At Prime Minister's Questions today, David Cameron announced that  heroes of the Second World War Arctic Convoy missions will receive medals. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-20783362

A campaign, led by MPs and veterans, including Whitchurch resident Roy Dykes, who served on board HMS Honeysuckle between 1941 and 1945, has finally secured this long overdue recognition of the great service to the nation given by those who served on the Atlantic convoys.

Roy is seen here talking in June this year about the campaign.
