It was an emotional and proud day for Sprowston resident Ray Parke L’dH when he was presented with a thank-you medal from the people of the Netherlands.

Ray, who lives at The Warren care home, was presented with the Dutch Liberators medal by Wing Cdr Martine Verhulst, Air Force Attaché (pictured).

The medal is awarded as a token of gratitude to the men and women who contributed to the liberation of the Netherlands during the Second World War.

Ray said: “I was on the verge of tears. It is such an amazing feeling to know that people care so much about me.”

Elizabeth Tacliad, general manager at The Warren, said: “We believe that every moment is worth cherishing. It was an honour to host this for Ray and his family and it was wonderful to see how happy Ray was. The staff loved being a part of this as well.”
