HC Deb 25 May 1944 vol 400 c928
46. Mr. Liddall

asked the Prime Minister if he will consider the issue of a ribbon to the troops who served throughout the siege of Malta.

Mr. Attlee

Troops who served in Malta at any time between 10 July, 1940, and 12 May, 1943, are eligible for the award of the Africa Star.

Mr. Liddall

Can my right hon. Friend say how it is that some soldiers, who served right through the siege of Malta and are now in Italy, have not yet received that medal?

Mr. Attlee

If the hon. Member has any particular case, perhaps he will put it to the Service Minister concerned.
