Commander Eddie Grenfell has spoken of his pride at the end of his sixteen-year-long campaign for himself and his colleagues to receive official recognition for their role in the Arctic Convoys of World War Two.
The 93-year-old commander said he was just sorry for his colleagues who had died before the medals were awarded.
