The British Empire Medal awarded to Fred Meads for bravery in the Second World War has disappeared from the church. This extract from Skillington Life describes his action:

Fred Meads was one of two men to arrive at the scene of a crashed American bomber. The two entered the burning plane, which was carrying a full load of bombs, and helped out four trapped crew members. For this Fred received the British Empire Medal and this now hangs proudly on the wall of the church belfry. Two other villagers received Commendations for Bravery for the help they gave.’

Would anyone with information please contact Graham Page (330281). Since it is not known when it was taken even a date of a recent sighting in the church would help.
