CARRIE Johnson took son Wilfred to see his great grandfather’s war medals yesterday – and to meet the man he was named after.
She shared an adorable snap of the toddler peering at Lt Wilfred Johnson’s display in the RAF Museum last night.
Flight Lieutenant Wilfred Johnson, PM Boris Johnson’s grandfather, joined the RAF in 1940 and served as a command pilot from 1942 to 1944.
He was seriously injured in a plane crash in August 1944, forcing him to retire, but earning him the distinguished Flying Cross medal.
Two of his crewmates died after their plane suffered an engine failure, forcing him to make an emergency landing at night, with the plane filled with weapons.
King George VI wrote to him personally to thank him for his service to the nation.
Doting mum Carrie wrote on Instagram: “Very special for Wilfred to find out more about his great grandfather and namesake at the Royal Airforce Museum in London.”
The tot, who has inherited his dad’s long blonde locks, was pictured in bright green trousers and a pair of cute red shoes.
