All those who served our country in Bomber Command and on the Arctic Convoys deserve nothing but the utmost respect and admiration.

"That’s why I am delighted that these special individuals will in the next few weeks begin to receive the Bomber Command clasp and Arctic Star that they have so long deserved.
