An ex-serviceman from Lowestoft has been awarded a special medal for a duty he did over 60 years ago.

Brian Hunter was presented with his “Nuclear Test Medal” – after being stationed on Christmas Island in the Pacific Ocean back in 1958, as bombs were tested as part of Operation Grapple.

Brian was presented with his medal at the Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club following the Remembrance Sunday by the Lord-Lieftenant for Suffolk, Clare, Countess of Euston.
