    Hi Harold,

    the basic can be found for example here:
    http://www.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/DefenceFor/Veterans/Medals/AirCrewEuropeStar.htm

    Generally:
    Can only be awarded after the 1939-45 Star has been qualified for.

    Aircrew Europe Star awarded for 60 additional days' service in an RAF Unit engaged in operational flying over Europe from bases in the UK with at least one operational sortie.

    After 5 Jun 44, operational flying over Europe qualified aircrew for the France and Germany Star.

    So I suppose he got France Germany Star instead of Aircrew Europe Star but if it was correct it depends on other details about his service.
