Ken MacLeod of the Comox Valley recently received a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

He earned it for conducting 24 veterans-military pilgrimages to northwest Europe and Sicily-Italy, beginning in 1995.

More than 2,000 veterans and their families have returned to the First and Second World War Canadian battlefields, cemeteries, commemorations, and tours, MacLeod says.

Col. Richard Cowling was the other person from the Comox Valley who received a Diamond Jubilee Medal from Clark on the same day that MacLeod did.
