Hello again everybody. I do hope that everybody is still doing OK. I must apologise for not being around on the group for quite some time, I've been involved with other projects, not least researching and writing my father's RAF service. For those who might be interested, you can find it at:- https://www.dropbox.com/s/ghz11fjlmr5ij31/Dave%20Walters%20RAFVR.pdf?dl=0 I do have one question though, regarding the Africa Star, or more particularly about the "clasps" to it. I know that he didn't qualify for the 1st or 8th Army clasps, but would he have qualified for the "North Africa 1942 - 1943" clasp? He was posted to RAF Khartoum in April 1942 and returned to the UK in September 1943. While he was en route to the Sudan he spent a short time at RAF Kasfareet, Ismailia, and that is in North Africa. I have a small card with his other documents which lists his entitlement to wear the Africa Star, it also mentions the word "Bar". The official information about the clasp shows that it was awarded for service in "specified areas" in Africa, but I'm unable to ascertain exactly where those areas were. I've emailed the Medals Office to see if they can throw some light on this and I'm waiting for a reply, but I would be grateful for any information which members can furnish. I'd also welcome comments about my booklet about my father's service.
