Her Majesty The Queen has approved the design for the new award of the Bomber Command Clasp, to be worn on the ribbon of the 1939 to 1945 Star and follows the design of the Battle of Britain Clasp. Priority in issuing the awards will be given to veterans and widows, other next of kin may also apply now but will have to wait to receive their award.

The Bomber Command Clasp to the 1939-45 Star is granted to the aircrew of Bomber Command who served for at least sixty days, or completed a tour of operations, on a Bomber Command operational unit and flew at least one operational sortie on a Bomber Command operational unit from the 3rd September 1939, to the 8th May 1945, inclusive. The award of the Clasp is to be denoted by a silver rose Emblem when the ribbon alone is worn.

Eligibility is extended to those members of Bomber Command aircrew who did not meet the qualifying criteria due to service being brought to an end by death, wounds or other disability due to service, service marked by a gallantry award or taken as a prisoner of war.

Foreign nationals commissioned or enlisted into British or, the then, Dominion Air Forces (e.g. Royal Canadian Air Force or Royal Australian Air Force) are eligible provided the individuals did not receive a similar award from their own Government.
