    Does anyone know if there is a roll / list of those veterans awarded the Legion D'Honneur since 2014?

    I would like to check if Eric Austin, Jack Fletcher or Roy Smart were awarded it and if so whether or not their regiment is mentioned...

    Thanks Kyle, but I was looking for some sort of official confirmation. All three men in my original post are reckoned to be ERY.

    Official ? As in a medal roll similar to those held for British Campaign Medals? No idea ? but these are your guys and each one confirm East Riding Yeomanry ?

    Answers two of your three questions anyway?

    Thanks Kyle but not really. I've already seen those newspaper articles.

    Roy Smart is definitely ERY but don't know whether he ever received his LdH (the account states he was waiting)

    Fletcher reports he was badly wounded 44/45 but there is no ERY man of that name listed in the casualty records so not convinced he was serving with them at the time.

    No mention of an Austin in Regimental accounts.

    Couldn't find any of them on the French website that gives the names of some the other recipients (but not all).

    I can verify two other ERY veterans who were awarded the LdH

    I am looking for something more official, a roll etc.
