Have your say

War medals belonging to a heroic Ilkeston-born fighter pilot have been sold at auction for more than £5,000.

The six Second World War medals, including two Distinguished Flying Medals, were awarded to Frank Geoffrey Woolley, of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, 70 years prior to their sale to an anonymous buyer.

They went under the hammer at Spink auction house, in Bloomsbury, London, on April 24 for £5,500.
