Holy Child Sister Pamela Hussey has earned the highest French order of merit, being named Knight of the Legion of Honor (Chevalier de l’ Ordre National de la Legion d’Honneur).
The award recognises Pamela’s part in “Sigint activities during the Second World War [that] were responsible for saving countless allied lives and played a key role in the liberation of France.”
Many British citizens, veterans of the Second World War who participated in the liberation of France, were distinguished in the Legion of Honor.
Pamela considers this to be a great honour, and she appreciates it immensely.
The Society is very proud of Pamela and the significant work that she and so many others undertook during that perilous time.
