Footnotes

  • D.F.M. London Gazette 14.4.1942.

    This N.C.O. has been flying on operations since the beginning of the War, and throughout the whole time that he has been in this Squadron his keeness and energy have been a great influence on other members of Aircrews and I strongly recommend that his courage and devotion to duty should be recognised by the awarding of the Distinguished Flying Medal.

    Covering remarks by Station Commander: I agree with the Squadron Commander's remarks. F/Sgt. Donnelly throughout his long operational tour has set a fine example of courage and devotion to duty. His character, coupled with his skill and ability, have been a very good influence among the WT Operator Air Gunners in the Squadron.

    Covering remarks by Air Officer Commanding: An excellent record of courage and devotion to duty. Strongly recommended for the award of the D.F.M.

    Served with No.76 Squadron, total hours flown on operations 304.30 hours, number of sorties carried out 40 sorties.
