1939-45 Star Full Size Medal

The 1939–1945 Star was the first campaign medal of the British Commonwealth awarded for service in the Second World War. The medal was awarded for operational service between 3rd September 1939 and 2nd September 1945.

The medal itself is a 6 pointed star with the Crowned Royal Cipher "GRI VI" in the centre, with an inscription of "THE 1939 - 1945 STAR" around the cipher. The reverse of the medal is blank as with all World War II stars. The ribbon is a standard width of 32mm or 1.25" wide and represents the 3 main services with 3 equal stripes; dark blue to the left representing the Navy, red in the centre representing the Army and light blue to the right, representing the RAF. 

There are 2 bars that can be awarded and worn on the 1939-45 Star, the Battle of Britain and Bomber Command bars. 

To qualify for this medal members of the Navy, Army and RAF needed to have served 6 months in an area of active operations, operational command or operational unit. For the Merchant Navy it was 6 months afloat providing atleast 1 journey was made through an operational area. Time being held as a prisioner of war counted towards the award. If an honour, decoration or Mention in Despatches was awarded, then they qualified for this medal, irrespective of the length of service. If service was curtailed by death or injury they automatically qualifed for the 1939- 45 Star.

Our museum quality replica full-size medals are made to the same exacting standards as the original and in line with MoD licensing. All official medals are sent loose on the ribbon unless medal mounting is also purchased on the same order.

WWII medals were not engraved when originally issued, so replacements therefore are not suitable for engraving.
