Jack Roots Medal Presentation

On Thursday 17th March 2016 we were very proud to hold a party for Jack Roots to celebrate him being presented with the Legion d'honneur by  the Mayor of Gravesham Cllr Mick Wenban. This medal is Frances highest honour and was awarded to Jack for his part in towing a floating harbour to Normandy's worn torn coast on D-Day. The Legion of Honour medal was established by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802 as Frances highest award. Jack was surrounded by family and friends for what was a very emotional occasion.
