■ WAR veterans wore their medals with pride as they reminisced about old times.
The men were part of the Russian Arctic Convoy and served during World War Two.
Leonard Dibb-Western, who lives in Worle, said it could be one of the last times they would all be able to meet.
The convoy sailed to Russia in 1944 but its progress was blocked by ice, and he believes that, had the weather been clearer, they would have been bombed by German planes.
In June, it was announced the regiment would receive a Russian bravery medal after the Government previously said it broke rules on foreign decorations as they had already received a UK medal for their service.
