Mr. Percy Danby, who turned 100 years old this year, participated in the Battle of Narvik, Northern Norway, during the Second World War.

At a recent ceremony at the Ambassador’s residence he was presented with Norway’s Defence Medal and the Commemorative Medal. The certificate presented to Mr. Danby was signed by His Majesty King Harald V.

It was a true honour to meet Mr. Danby, and we remain deeply grateful for his participation in fighting for our freedom.
