List of Fleet Air Arm Honours and Awards 1939-1945

The France & Germany Star
awarded to FAA Personnel


France and Germany Star



The Star was awarded for one day or more of service in France, Belgium, Holland or Germany between 6 June 1944 (D-Day) and 8 May 1945. 


If later entitled to that star, the ATLANTIC bar would be worn. 
Note that the Aircrew Europe Bar is not issued with this star because one could not qualify for that star after 05 June 1944.


The ribbon consists of equal stripes of blue, white, red, white, and blue. The colours represent the Union flag and those of France and the Netherlands but not of Belgium.
