Mosswood Resident Receives Second World War Medal
Posted by Mosswood Care Home
Mosswood resident, William Stewart, was awarded the defence and war medal as a result of his service in the Second World War. Upon hearing that his grandfather had not received his medals in the 1940’s, Andrew contacted the MOD who later approved William’s application and acknowledged his service as a Leading Hand Electrical Engineer during World War Two sending William’s medals to the family. To William’s surprise, his family had organised a presentation at Mosswood where James Gaughan – chairman of the Royal British Legion Paisley Comrades Club – presented the medals.
Delighted with his medals William said that the presentation brought back, “so many good memories from those days”, and that the presentation was a, “lovely surprise”. Following on, with his medals pinned to his blazer, William and his family enjoyed a wee dram, tea, and cake delighted in sharing stories of his experience during the War.
