    Default New Bomber Command Medal

    I was reading in 'This England' magazine that a new "Bomber Command Medal' was struck in the late 1990's Could anyone please provide me with information on this. Also how would I obtain one for my brother.

    Thank you.

    It was a Commemorative medal rather than an officially sanctioned one. Here are some details, though this is not the only site that sells them, and so shop around:

    Hello Margaret,

    I bought my father one of these medals in the 1980s. He was a Halifax navigator, shot down just before D-Day. Although he was very grateful, he never liked wearing it as it didn't carry the Monarchs head and he knew it was unofficial.

    I have always felt it was a great pity the brave aircrew were denied an official medal. I have never fully understood why.
