The Africa Star

The Africa Star was awarded for service in the North African Campaign of World War 2. It was one of eight campaign star medals issued. The medal is a six-pointed star with the Royal Cipher GRI VI in the centre surrounded by the inscription 'The Africa Star' and surmounted by a crown. Its accompanying ribbon is pale buff, with a central vertical red stripe and two narrower stripes, one dark blue and one light blue.

This Africa Star was provided by Neil McKechnie for a War Detectives project in 2005
