Five British veterans have received France's highest military honour for their role in liberating the country during the Second World War.
The four men and one woman, all aged in their 90s, include an Enigma codebreaker, a soldier who once captured 12 Germans and a cameraman who filmed the landing at Normandy on D-Day.
Ruth Bourne, 92, Joseph Randall, 95, Albert Avann, 93, Alfred Hicks and Thomas Stonehouse were each presented with their Legion of Honour (Legion d'honneur) medals in a ceremony at the French Ambassador's Residence in London.
The French Ambassador to the UK, Jean-Pierre Jouyet, said the ceremony was the most emotional event in the year.
"It is a very great honour for me to recognise and express our country's heartfelt gratitude to each of you, who helped liberate France during the Second World War".
Mr Jouyet presented the veterans with their medals and kissed them on both cheeks before the French and British national anthems were played.
The ceremony follows several others that have taken place across the UK since the 70th anniversary of D-Day in June 2014.
Former French President Francois Hollande at the time pledged to honour all British veterans who had served and France has so far decorated more than 5,500 veterans.
