It's a bit shitty they can't change his file, i hope they add into it what he did though.

Although he's not around to see the gratitude 65 years later, at least we can appriciate it now.

Nice to see the real story emerging. What gets my goat, is why do the family have to write to get a letter to the fact, added to his records?

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said while it was impossible to change his file the family could ensure he was still recognised.

"If Mr Key's family write to us asking for a permanent letter to be put in his file, recognising what he did we can do that," he said.

Simple: posthumous GC. Well... not simple, but certainly possible if the will is there to make amends. If the incident has been investigated and there are witnesses then I see no reason why this brave feller shouldn't get officially recognised other than by a strip of tarmac.
