This category contains profiles of recipients of the War Medal 1939-1945

The War Medal 1939–1945 was a campaign medal instituted by the United Kingdom for award to subjects of the British Commonwealth who had served full-time in the Armed Forces or the Merchant Navy for at least 28 days between 3rd September 1939 and 2nd September 1945. In the Merchant Navy, the 28 days must have been served at sea. It is sometimes incorrectly described as the "Victory Medal" for the Second World War.

The medal is cupro-nickel with the crowned effigy of King George VI on the obverse. The reverse has a lion standing on a double-headed dragon. The top of the reverse shows the dates 1939 and 1945. The ribbon colours of red, white and blue represent the colours of the Union Flag. A bronze oak leaf emblem is worn on the ribbon to signify a Mention in Despatches, a King's Commendation for Brave Conduct, or a King's Commendation for Valuable Service in the Air.
