A bit of medal help please


Book Reviewer
My Great Uncle passed away a while ago, I know he served as a torpedoman aboard a few ships during WW2. Anyhoo, during the decluttering of his house, we came across these, can someone help in identifying them for me. They've never been mounted and were tucked away in a box at the bottom of his wardrobe, cheers.


Off the top of my head, left to right. WW2 victory medal, 39-46 Star, Atlantic Star, Pacific Star, and I think the Italy Star. Not certain about the mounting order, but your Great Uncle got about abit.

I only got these off the old dear last Monday, but they came with an A4 envelope with all of his papers(which she's holding onto), but the Pacific and Atlantic bits ring a bell, cheers again.
The order should (probably) be 2 - 3 - 5 - 4 - 1. 1939-45 Star, Atlantic Star, Italy Star, Pacific Star and 1939-45 War Medal. The Italy Star probably denotes service in the Med. I say probably as he'd have likely gone out East towards the end of WW2.

A bloody good set that!
