VICTORIA CROSS

Introduced as the premier award for gallantry, available for all ranks, to cover all actions since the outbreak of the Crimean War in 1854. A cross pattee. On the obverse a lion statant gardant on the royal crown, with the words FOR VALOUR on a semi-circular scroll. The Cross is suspended by a ring from a seriffed 'V' attached to a suspension bar decorated with laurel leaves. Crimson ribbon.

DISTINGUISHED SERVICE ORDER

The DSO was instituted on 6 September 1886 by Queen Victoria in a Royal Warrant published in the London Gazette on 9 November. It is typically awarded to offericers ranked Major (or its equivalent) or higher, but the honour has sometimes been awarded to especially valorous junior officers. A cross with curved ends overlaid with white enamel. The obverse shows an enamel laurel wreath enclosing an imperial crown. This medal is uniface, with the reverse left blank and marked 'Copy'. Ribbon is crimson with dark blue edges.

DISTINGUISHED FLYING CROSS

Established for officers and warrant officers of the R.A.F. in respect of acts of valour while flying in active operations against the enemy. A cross flory terminating with a rose, surmounted by another cross made of propellor blades charged in the centre with a roundel within a laurel wreath. The horizontal arms bear wings and the crowned R.A.F. monogram at the centre. The cross is suspended from a bar decorated with a sprig of laurel. Ribbon has diagonal alternative stripes of white and deep purple.

1939 - 1945 STAR

Awarded to personnel who had completed six months of service, between 3 September 1939 and 2 September 1945, in specified operational commands overseas. Any service curtailed by death, injury or capture also qualified. The six pointed star has a circular centre with the GRI / VI monogram, surmounted by a crown and inscribed THE 1939-1945 STAR round the foot. Ribbon is equal stripes of dark blue, red and light blue symbolising the Royal Navy, Army and RAF respectively.

AIR CREW EUROPE STAR

Awarded for operational flying from UK bases over Europe, for a period of two months between 3rd September 1939 and 4th June 1944. This star is by far the most coveted of all the Second World War stars. The six pointed star has a circular centre with the GRI / VI monogram,surmounted by a crown and inscribed THE AIR CREW EUROPE STAR round the foot. Ribbon is pale blue (the sky) with black edges (night flying) and a narrow yellow stripe on either side (enemy search lights).
