Frequently Asked Questions

How do I claim my father's/mother’s Burma Star medal and other medals?

 

If a service person’s medals were not claimed the medals can still be claimed now for service back to (and including) WWII.  However, proof of death and kinship are required before medals are issued.  If you wish to apply, please complete the application form from the Veterans Agency’s website AND the Certificate of Kinship form, and send both forms to the address stated.
