War hero, and friend of Gad’s Joe Hoadley, honoured for bravery

More than 70 years after playing his part in the Normandy landings during the Second World War, veteran Joe Hoadley has been awarded the Legion D’Honneur for his bravery.

Joe, 92, from Swanscombe, is the grandfather of U5B student Aidan Hoadley and a keen supporter of Gads, regularly attending our CCF parades and events.

See this week’s Gravesend Messenger for the full story.

Very well done to Joe from everybody at Gad’s.
