The Veterans Memorial Lodge at Broadmead hosted the Deputy Consul of France, Antoine Mention, on Thursday as he acknowledged two additional residents for their contribution in liberating France during the Second World War.
The ceremony followed an initial gathering in January in which two Veterans Health Centre members and four residents of the lodge received their Legion of Honour medals with help from members of MARPAC.
Leonhardt Beck, Stanley Charles Maher, Jack Porter, Bill Capek, Ken Parton, Geoff Lesueur, Philip Jeffrey and Earl Clark were all honoured.
Napoleon Bonaparte created the Legion of Honour in 1802 to recognize exemplary service to France.
