I would write to the MoD medal office and apply for the arctic star on behalf of your father, as Kent and Arethusa both went to the arctic region

James_harvey ... thanks for info on Kent and Arethusa both going to arctic region however http://www.rogersstudy.co.uk/medals/ww2_stars/stars.html does not show arctic star and I require an image of same so that I can produce a graphic image of his set of medals for my records on Ancestry.com.au ... btw I also need the "order of mounting" to ensure I have produced them correctly.

BTW the addy for my record on the Ancestry site is (for those who may want to see the results of my research on him) ...

You will need to write / email the mod to make sure he qualified as he may not have sailed on the Arctic routes for various reasons

You would also be able to claim the medal if authorised if you google arctic star you will find a photo

Order of wear it comes after the 39-45 star and Atlantic star and before all other ww2 Medals
