I have recently bought some letters, note book and photographs to a Sergeant (Air Gunner) in the RAFVR who was killed whilst serving with No. 4 (Continental) Ferry Pilot Pool. His name was Dennis Patrick Humphrey McGovern (though his christian names change order depending on what records you look at). His number was 903042. He was killed when his Bristol Blenheim IV. L9317 crashed in bad weather over France, en route to Malta from Tangmere on 18th June 1940. My query is what medals he would have been entitled to given his death in 1940. Only the 1939-45 War Medal came with the items, but it had a 1939-45 Star ribbon with it. I am wondering if those two medals would have been his only entitlement, or whether because of death during service, he would have been entitled to an Air Crew Europe Star. Would crews that ferried aircraft to different locations be considered to have been on 'operational duties' or not? Many thanks for any help. Ceri.
