Awarded to all Commonwealth Forces for one or more days of operational service in either France, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands or Germany, this famous military decoration was instituted on the actual day of the D-Day Landings at Normandy – the 6th of June 1944. The qualiﬁcation period for the medal extended to the end of the war in Europe – VE Day on the 8th of May.
