Congratulations to Dr. Fred Hunt, radar veteran, on receiving the French Legion of Honour!
The ceremony was held on November 10, 2015, with French Ambassador Nicolas Chapuis presenting the medals. The veterans were honoured for the roles they played in France's liberation. Fred is one of our long-time supporters and an esteemed World War II radar veteran. We have numerous artefacts in the collection donated by Fred, including field maps from his time operating mobile radar in France and Belgium. He is also one of the veterans we profile in the In Harm's Way exhibit, currently in development, about radar on the front lines.
