The Prime Minister went on board HMS Belfast today to meet some of the veterans who served in the Arctic convoys during World War II. He presented medals to 40 convoy veterans and clasps to 25 who flew with Bomber Command.

Both awards were recently created after a campaign to highlight the service of the veterans during the war.
