The Arctic Emblem was officially launched at a ceremony on HMS Belfast in London on 11 October, during which I presented a small number of emblems to eligible veterans and next of kin. Similar ceremonies were held around the country.

Some 5,000 emblems were despatched to eligible applicants by post on 16 October and a further 900 applications received in recent weeks are currently being processed by the Department.
