The France and Germany Star

The France and Germany Star was awarded for service in the Second World War in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and adjacent sea areas, between 6 June 1944 and 8 May 1945. An ‘Atlantic’ clasp could be awarded with this medal. Personnel who qualified for both the France and Germany and the Atlantic Stars were awarded the first star but only a clasp in respect of the second. The ribbon uses the colours of the Union Jack; red, white and blue, which are also the national colours of France and The Netherlands.
