Pevensey MP Greg Barker has welcomed the government’s announcement that World War II heroes or their families will receive new recognition.

People, or the family of the deceased, who served on the Arctic Convoys and in Bomber Command will be eligible.

Mr Barker said, “This is an historic announcement which will truly recognise the bravery displayed by those who fought for our freedom in World War Two. “My constituency is still home to many brave veterans .I would encourage all eligible veterans and next of kin to apply for the new awards.”
