Eric Lomax, a retired accountant from Penzance and Branch member of TRBL Penzance, has been appointed to the rank of Chevalier in the Ordre national de la Légion d’honneur and has received the insignia of Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur.

Eric Lomax was just 19 when he and his company stormed a Normandy beach on 6 June 1944. Wounded in the chest by machine gun fire – his life saved by a glasses case over his heart – he said: “It was fierce and we lost a lot of men"
