Deputy Mayor of Flint, Cllr. Vicky Perfect, and I have held a congratulations ceremony for Mr. Richard Commins who was awarded the Legion d’honneur, and who recently celebrated his 93rd birthday.
Mr. Commins is one of Flintshire’s finest. He was recently awarded the Legion d’honneur for his sacrifices in the liberation of France during the Second World War. The Legion d’honneur has been awarded to British veterans by the French government to thank them for their role in ensuring the French people were freed from Nazi oppression. I have been working with the families of these brave men to ensure that they were all bestowed this great honour from the French Republic. Read more “Legion d’honneur ceremony”
