A couple of medal questions:

Which campaign star (if any) would have been awarded to troops that saw active service in Iraq and Persia during the invasion and occupation of those countries by allied forces (1940-1?).

What about troops in Palastine, Syria and Lebanon?

Thanks!

Six months service between 3 Sep 39 and 2 Sep 45 in all of the above-named theatres would only have qualified the combatant for the 1939-45 Star. Qualifying period reduced in certain circumstances (injury, death, capture and decoration or award of MiD).
Hope this helps.
