Prince honours war veteran MP

Have your say

FORMER Army Major turned South Yorkshire MP Dan Jarvis was today being presented with an MBE at Buckingham Palace by Prince Charles for his services to the British Armed forces.

The Barnsley Central Labour MP served with The Parachute Regiment and was an aide to General Sir Mike Jackson when he commanded British forces in Kosovo.

Mr Jarvis was also posted to Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan. He left the Army to stand at the Barnsley Central by election this year after Eric Illsley was jailed for expenses fraud.
