Have your say

ARCTIC Convoy veterans who haven’t been presented with medals will get the recognition they deserve on Armed Forces Day.

Portsmouth City Council plans to hold a Arctic Star presentation ceremony on Saturday, June 29.

Council leader Gerald Vernon-Jackson said: ‘We want to do it on Armed Forces Day because it’s a national day for everyone to remember our veterans and their medals and we want to show how much we value them. It (the day) will be much bigger than before.’
