The last known surviving Battle of France and Battle of Britain pilot has received a special, early Christmas gift from the Royal Air Force.
Group Captain (retired) John Paddy Hemingway was given a replacement uniform after he said earlier in the year that he wished he had been in uniform to meet the Chief of the Air Staff during a nursing home visit in Northern Ireland.
The uniform was delivered by Wing Commander Jacqueline Rankin, Personal Staff Officer to Air Marshal Sean Reynolds, the RAF's Air Officer Northern Ireland.
Mr Hemingway's son Brian was with his father when he received the gift and said: "My dad was quite emotional and grateful for this special Christmas present."
Retired Gp Capt Hemingway is believed to be the last known surviving veteran of the RAF Battle of France and the last of 'The Few' – those pilots who flew during the Battle of Britain.
The former Hurricane pilot's medals were also returned, after undergoing restoration and cleaning work at the RAF Museum in London.
