    I do three events a year with the Arctic Convoy Vets and I am really pleased for them!

    Taken far too long and reading that " The Ministry of Defence has to draw up eligibility criteria before it will award the decorations, and that could take months" makes we wonder how many more of the veterans will not be with us by the time they sort themselves out. Come on MOD - pull your fingers out and please give it some priority!
