A Sheffield war hero says he is 'delighted' after being presented with France's highest military honour.
Veteran Jim Pass, aged 98, was presented with the Légion d’Honneur by the French Consul to Yorkshire, Jeremy Burton, at a service on Sunday.
He was among six other Yorkshire men to be presented with the award at the Allied Air Force and Memorial and Yorkshire Air Museum, in York.
Jim, who drove amphibian vehicles for the Royal Army Service Corps, said: "I am delighted to receive the Légion d’Honneur, it is an amazing honour to receive."
Jim received the medal in recognition of his service on and during the D-Day Invasion campaign of June 1944.
Jim landed on SWORD Beach on D-Day to take up his role as driver and dispatch rider. He acted as a driver for the Ammunition Coy and dispatch rider.
The medal presentation service was followed by the Wreath Laying ceremony in the Memorial Garden, where attendees honoured the memory of the fallen in the World Wars and other conflicts.
Jim lives with wife Rita, 70, in Bradway. Rita said: "I'm so proud of Jim, it really is a tremendous honour."
