Charles Coward - The Count of Auschwitz

Just finished reading the Password is Courage - the story of BSM Charles Coward who helped hundreds of jews escape from Auschwitz. Can anyone tell me if he was ever awarded a medal by the brits for his action (which include major works of sabotage while a prisoner)
I know the Israelis gave him a medal for saving Jews - one of only two to Brits - the other was Churchill!

put Charles Coward into Google and see the wicki story taken from my article on coward.
The medal is now in Canada . Charles has a tree dedicated to him in the avenue of righteous gentiles .

Didn't Dirk Bogarde play him in a film of the same name?
Right you are. ;-)
