My grandfather was R D Kippax, Brigade Quartermaster Sergeant in Royal Artillery in WW2.
1939-45 War Medal
Mentioned in Despatches
Theatre/Reason for award
Italy (including Monte Cassino, Anzio, Salerno, San Marino etc)
Is there anywhere on line to find out what he was mentioned in Despatches for? And what is the "Star" Campaign Medal?
I got the above information from www.forces-war-records.co.uk
