We are delighted that the British Government has now allowed the Russia to present these medals to the surviving veterans


The Russian Government has awarded the Ushakov medal for bravery and courage to World War II veterans from across the world.

The governments of Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA have granted permission to the veterans of the Arctic Convoys to be awarded the Ushakov Medal, however the British government has refused permission to our own veterans.

David Craig, one of our May 2013 Loch Ewe Veterans was interviewed recently by the BBC which you can see HERE
