I'm Carol Vorderman MBE, TV presenter and Honorary Ambassador for the RAF Air Cadets.

Last year I met 95-year-old George "Johnny" Johnson - Britain's last surviving hero from the Dambusters raid on Nazi Germany.

I was overwhelmed and humbled by his achievements and what he has done for this country.

That's why many of us were extremely disappointed that, in spite of being nominated, he was overlooked in this year's New Year Honours list. I can't think of anyone who deserves a knighthood more than Johnny.

There were many fine people who received awards, but I believe they would all agree that Johnny deserves one too.

He is an incredible man who volunteered for one of the most dangerous missions during World War II. And since then he has been a teacher, a counsellor, endlessly supported young people and raised huge amounts for charity.  Johnny Johnson has devoted his entire life to helping other people.

Please sign this petition to get Johnny the recognition he deserves.
