A firefighter who attended the Coventry Cathedral blaze during the Second World War has now been awarded a medal for his heroism.
Lionel Clark, who turns 100 in July, was a volunteer fireman during the blitz of Coventry, where over 1,200 people died from German bombardment.
Despite his heroic firefighting during the 1940s, Lionel was never officially recognised – until now.
Lionel lives at the Acorn Lodge Care Home in Nuneaton and spent may years as an employee at the Jaguar Plant at Brown Lane.
