Ushakov Medal For Arctic Convoy Veterans

EDM number 630 in 2012-13, proposed by John Leech on 24/10/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Armed forces, Military operations, Russia and Shipping.

That this House pays tribute to the bravery of the thousands of heroes who sailed on Arctic Convoys to the Soviet Union through Nazi air, submarine and battle attacks in sub-zero conditions enabling the Soviet Union to be supplied during the Second World War; pays respect to the more than 3,000 troops who did not survive the perilous sea campaign; notes that survivors, including Manchester resident Bob Cowan, are now in their late eighties and nineties; and urges the Government swiftly toreconsider its decision to deny the opportunity for survivors to accept the Ushakov medal from the Russian government and be rightly commended for their services during the Second World War.

This motion has been signed by a total of 42 MPs.
