I am delighted to report that one of our members, Stan Loosley, has been appointed to the rank of ‘Chevalier in the Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur’. This is awarded by the President of the Republic of France, and is an extremely prestigious award.
The citation from the French Embassy in London reads:
“I offer you my warmest congratulations for this high honour, which recognises your military engagement and steadfast involvement in the liberation of France during the Second World War” It goes on to say “We must never forget heroes like you”.
I know that we all offer Stan our warmest congratulations on this singular honour. We are proud to have him among us as a member of the Club.
