At a special ceremony in Downing Street, the Prime Minister presented the Arctic Star medal - or the Bomber Command clasp. But Arctic veteran Alec Penstone from the Isle of Wight, is 'sore' because he was not invited to the ceremony.
An Arctic Convoy veteran from the Isle of Wight has begun his journey to London to collect his medal from The Prime Minister at Downing Street. Douglas Turtle was involved in one of World War Two's most dangerous naval missions. He has been invited to a special ceremony by David Cameron.
The award of the Arctic Star and the Bomber Command Clasp follows years of campaigning for proper recognition for armed services personnel from the Arctic Convoys and Bomber Command during the Second World War.
