Hero's medals given to Duxford Imperial War Museum





A war hero's Battle of Britain medals have been gifted to a museum on the site of the former Cambridgeshire airfield he was based at.

Wing Commander George Blackwood served at RAF Duxford during World War II with the 310 Squadron - the first completely Czech fighter squadron.

He received the Defence Medal, George Star, Aircrew Europe Star and Czech War Cross and Czech Military Medal.

His family gave the collection to Imperial War Museum Duxford later.
