Lynne Featherstone, Liberal Democrat MP for Hornsey & Wood Green, this week presented local veteran and Crouch End resident, Mr. Patrick Davies, with a Veteran’s Lapel Badge to mark his service in the Royal Air Force.

Mr. Davies completed National Service from 1953 to 1955 and served at RAF St. Athans in South Wales.

Ms Featherstone comments:

“It was a real pleasure to meet Mr. Davies and hear about his service in the RAF.His story was a timely reminder of all people who have served our country, not only in war but also in peace.

“Poppy Day is opportunity to reflect on the sacrifice of service personnel who lost their lives in wars as well as salute the brave souls who have served so gallantly to preserve peace.”
