    No need to be sorry, many items get reposted because some missed them first time round.

    It was good that they finally got the least they deserved for the service they gave.

    On Friday I will be to see several of these medals in wear by the Veterans who won them at such a high price, as I will be on board HMS Belfast with the Arctic Convoys Veterans Club.

    Cheers, Ade.
