Military medal for Berry Nieuwenhuys


January 8, 1945
Berry Nieuwenhuys has received notice that he has been awarded the Czech Military Medal of Merit for services rendered to the Czech Fighter Squadrons of the RAF. Congratulations, Berry. For a long time Nieuwenhuys has been P.T. instructor to a Czech squadron and the award proves how well he has done his job.

On Christmas Day Berry’s second daughter was born – the first died – and he is proud of the fact that he is skipper of the club leading the North Cup Qualifying Competition with a 100 per cent distinction shared by four clubs.
