    Default Bomber Command Clasp - new medal

    Hi

    I just caught the end of a piece on our New Zealand News that a new medal/clasp is being minted in UK for Bomber Command. I can't seem to find the information anywhere on the web, does anyone know anything about it and who it is for. One of my relatives served with BC (now deceased) and his brother would like to know if he is entitled to it. I have a feeling from what I saw of the news clip that it was something to do with the Artic Patrols and their new medal. Can anyone shed any light on this please.

    TIA

    Hi
    I too heard a snippet on the UK national BBC news about this, I seem to think it mentioned costal as well as Bomber crews and that relatives could apply. That is all i managed to hear on the sunject. I hope in due course it is revieled. May be worth trying the on line BBC news?
