Hi all, I just thought I would show this great grouping(1939-45 Star/Air Crew Europe Star with Atlantic bar/British War Medal/Defence Medal and General Service Medal with Malaya Bar)and Log Book that I have just bought from Bob Simms site. From looking on the net I can see this group has come up for sale in the past and was originally mounted on a bar, but for some reason the medals are now loose?
I do not normally collect British Medals but this group really took my fancy as the chap concerned ( Flt Lt A.F.H. BARBER) flew in just about every type of bomber going as an air gunner/wireless operator throughout the whole war. Taking part in many bombing raids, he also had the experience of taking on ME109's on occasion with one possible downing. He also flew in convoy escort in the Mediterranean attacking a U-Boat! A really nice group with log book from a brave Airman, that will go proudly in my display cabinet. Leon.
