    Looks like the earlier model Pommy L1A3. Slightly different to the ones we had, the L1A2, not as pointy at the tip as the Pommy ones.

    They are getting harder to find given there wasnt a lot issued and there are fakes galore of this medal. I think most would be unnamed due to the UK being the likely recipient of most of them, another reason there arent as many is the stupid clasp rules. If you qualified for 3 stars from a group that included the Aircrew Europe Star, you got the star that you first qualified for and 2 clasps for the other 2. Its amazing how scungy they are for people who risked their lives.
