Burton Latimer’s Civic Centre is named after Harold Mason – a local man who sailed in the convoys across the Arctic Ocean between Britain and the Soviet Union during the Second World War.
Thousands of sailors were killed during the missions – which Winston Churchill is said to have described as ‘the worst journey in the world’.
In 2014, at the age of 89, Harold received a Ushakov Medal from the Russian ambassador in recognition of his service.
