On Saturday 5th March family, friends, residents, trustees and staff gathered in the dining room to celebrate our resident Bert Osborn receiving the award of Chevalier in the Legion d’Honneur for his services in WW2 in 455 RAAF Squadron. Capitain François Jean, the French Honorary Consul awarded Bert the Medal followed by a lovely speech from Bert thanking everyone. Residents and Captain Jean were delighted when Bert replied in both English and French.
In his time in the RAAF Burt completed a total of 49 operational missions.
