    There may be differences with the Canadian Bomber Command Bar (clasp).
    There has always been a 'pecking-order', so to speak.
    It used to be veteran, widow, #1 son, #2 son, etc.
    Now I think it's veteran, widow, eldest child (regardless of gender) 2nd eldest child, etc.

    Also into consideration may be if medals have been bequeathed or willed by a deceased veteran.
    Also into consideration may be if all other parties agree to the applicant.

    There may be other considerations.

    Mike,
    I applied by email as nok in February( no acknowledgement-even though I asked for one.)
    I re-applied by post in September, and still wait to hear.
    My friend in NZ has just heard with a query on his application for his late fathers clasp - so it would appear that things are moving.very,very,slowly. But then a great deal of work their end to substatiate claim. So patience rules.

    All the best,
    Paul H

    Hi Paul,

    like you I emailed my application in February and re-applied. Last I heard applications for nok were to be processed in September?

    I know the award has caused a lot of mixed feeling from veterans.

    Will just have to sit it out.

    Regards,
    Mike
