Information: The Air Crew Europe Star was awarded for operational flying from bases in the United Kingdom over Europe from 3 September 1939 to 4 June 1944. For aircrew of the Air Forces, two months of operational flying was required in order to qualify for this award. Army personnel qualified for this star after they had served on air crew duties for four months, provided 2 months of this minimum four month period had been operational flying over Europe with at least one operational sortie.

This star is by far the most coveted of all Second World War stars.
