The France and Germany Star (WW2)

Loading...

Media TitleThe France and Germany Star (WW2)
Media NotesThe France and Germany Star was awarded for operational services in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany between June 6th, 1944 (D-Day) and the May 8th, 1945, (the German surrender). Operational service in the Royal and Merchant Navies in the English Channel, North Sea and Bay of Biscay in connection with the campaign in Northern Europe also qualified. Naval service off the coast of the South of France did not qualify for this award, but qualified for the Italy Star.

RAF aircrews having taken part in an operational sortie over Europe between June 6th, 1944 and May 8th, 1945 as well as aircrews who flew operations over Europe from Mediterranean bases did not qualify for this award either but for the Italy Star.

Personnel qualifying for the France and Germany Star and the Atlantic Star, only received the first award with a suitably inscribed bar for the second attached to the ribbon.
