Arctic Star Miniature Medal

The Arctic Star is awarded for operational service of any duration north of the Arctic circle from the outbreak of war on the 3rd September 1939 until VE day on the 8th May 1945. Whilst the primary intent is to recognise those who served on the Arctic Convoys, eligibility is extended to include all who served north of the Arctic Circle in World War Two. Those eligible will include members of all three Services as well of course as the Merchant Navy who crewed the ships taking the vital supplies to Russia. The Arctic star was issued retrospectively from March 2013. 

The miniature medal itself is a 6 pointed star with the Crowned Royal Cipher "GRI VI" in the centre, with an inscription of "THE ARCTIC STAR" around the cipher. The reverse of the medal is blank as with all World War II stars. The miniature ribbon is a standard width of 16mm, the centre of the ribbon is white bordered with two narrow black lines, followed by dark red, Navy and light blue on the edge of the ribbon on both sides. No miniature bars were awarded to be worn on the ribbon. 

The qualifying period for the Arctic Star is “service of any length” north of the Arctic circle during WWII, recognising the particular severity of the conditions experienced by those who served in the Arctic.

AWARD miniature medals complement the full-size official medals and are normally worn for formal dinner dress occasions.

All official medals are sent loose on the ribbon unless medal mounting is also purchased on the same order.
