    Hi Kate,

    The Dunkirk medal was issued to surviving veterans 1960 to comemorate the 20th anniversary.

    It was first made available to veterans of the dunkirk evacuation and later administered by the now disbanded Dunkirk Veterans association.

    You can get a copy of this medal from award productions.

    The original came with a certificate, and these can fetch £50-60.

    I hope this helps

    James
