Canine Courage

June 2014, Volume 52 No. 6
D-Day 70 years on

In lieu of a “Comment” this month the MEDAL NEWS team would like to pay tribute to all those who took part in operations on D-Day, June 6, 1944 and all those who were awarded the France and Germany Star.

We all owe them a huge debt of gratitude — our world would be a very different place without them.
