Smeaton gets his gallantry medal

Good to see that John Smeaton got his medal from the Queen at Tuesday’s investiture.

He’s the baggage handler at Glasgow Airport who helped a police officer being attacked by a terrorist last June.  A car was driven into the airport building, and John wrestled a suspected terrorist to the ground.

He was awarded the Queen’s Gallantry Medal.   He described getting the medal from the Queen as the “proudest moment of his life”. 

We should be proud of him.   He is a hero and thoroughly deserves the medal.
