HC Deb 27 September 1944 vol 403 c260W
Wing-Commander Hulbert

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that the White Paper on Decorations and Medals, Cmd. 6463, states that the Africa Star may be granted to R.A.F. personnel landing in the defined operational command in North Africa even if not part of an establishment in that operational area, namely, in the case of specially approved journeys and inspections; and whether a similar discretionary provision applies to the Army in the case of personnel entering an operational command in North Africa where the journey is specially approved, even though an individual is not part of the establishment in the operational command.

Sir J. Grigg

Yes, Sir. Each case is considered on its merits.
