RAF man Paul commended.
Corporal Paul Mason, 27, pictured, who is based at RAF Kinloss in Moray, Scotland, has been awarded a Joint Commanders Commendation. It follows his four-month tour to Kandahar Airfield earlier this year.
Cpl Mason, from Billingham, was recognised for playing "a leading role in sustaining the ability of 904 Expeditionary Air Wing to deliver air operations". During his time in Kandahar, Cpl Mason also designed modifications for many types of equipment, and volunteered his help to other units based at Kandahar Airfield.
He also raised more than pounds 1,000 for the Help for Heroes charity during his detachment.
Paul, whose parents still live in Billingham, said: "I was gobsmacked when I found out that I'd got the commendation. I was just doing my job, but it's nice to know that other people appreciated what I was doing."
