The France and Germany Star was awarded for service in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and adjacent sea areas between 6 June 1944 and 8 May 1945.
This bronze six-pointed star has a circular centre with the GRI/VI monogram, surmounted by the Royal crown, and inscribed ‘The France and Germany Star’. The star has a height of 44mm and maximum width of 38mm.
Personnel qualifying for both the France and Germany Star and the Air Crew Europe or Atlantic Star were awarded the first star they qualified for, and a clasp in respect of the second star. The clasp simply has the words ‘France and Germany’.
The ribbon has stripes of red, white and blue that represent the colours of the Union Flag, France and the Netherlands.
The clasp is worn in combination with either the Aircrew Europe Star or the Atlantic Star and is pinned onto the ribbon.
