Footnotes

  • D.F.M. London Gazette. 21.11.1941.

    Recommendation: For continuous gallantry and devotion to duty during raids into enemy territory. This NCO has shown great courage in all tasks he had been called upon to undertake. On the night of 27th August (1941) during an operational sortie the W/T transmitter in the aircraft became unserviceable. This NCO repaired the set under very trying conditions, obtaining valuable wireless assistance which enabled the Navigator to bring the aircraft safely back to base. During July (1941) Sgt.Daniels was WO/AG of an aircraft detailed to attack Brest in daylight. Large fighter opposition was encountered and over the target area the aircraft was severely damaged by Flak. Sgt Daniels used his guns with great determination, earning the highest possible praise from the formation leader and Captain of his aircraft.

    Sergeant Thomas John Daniels served with 144 Squadron. The Squadron was based at North Luffenham, Rutland, and was equipped with Handley Page Hampden Bombers. Wireless Operator/Air Gunner with total flying hours on operations of 210 hours 15 mins, number of sorties carried out 32.

    Sold with minor research.
