  5. Hello all thanks for the feedback and comments I have also questioned the 1939/45 star but it came with the group so I take it he must have had entitlement some how. Over all this is still my favourite group for many reasons including the double gallantry awards as well the Russian award he was given, shame not with group regards Caz
