Examples of World War Two medals, some of which Euxton’s service people are entitled. From L to R:

The Defence Medal (awarded to service personnel in a non-operational area after 3 years service)

The 1939-45 War Medal (awarded to all full time service personnel after 28 days service)
The Arctic Star (awarded retrospectively by the British Government from March 2013.

After constant lobbying by veterans and associations, this medal was struck to recognise those who
served on or over the Arctic circle and assisted or served as part of the Russian Convoys.)
