Andy,

My partner's Mother Barbara. 86. served in the Land Army. She was based at Malton, North Yorkshire. I enclose a picture of her and brother Donald. He served on the Artic convoys. He wasn't bothered in claiming the recently issued Artic Star but I bet Barbara will be first in the queue for her medal O0


Never argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level and try to beat you with experience.
