Footnotes

  • D.F.M. London Gazette 24.12.1943.

    Recommendation from Officer Commandng 20 Squadron: F/Sgt. Taylor has completed 76 operational hours over the Chindwin Hills and Arakan area. His whole bearing has been exceptional and he has been a fine example to the whole detachment. He has shown a keen desire to perform all the tasks alloted to him in a most efficient manner and a wish for more active contact against the enemy which his particular role would not allow. Flying was carried out in semi-obsolete aircraft, in difficult country and crews were brifed to go very low and attract light fire from the ground forces so that enemy positions could be accurately pin-pointed. Information brought back was invaluable and the crew helped in no little way towards the great success of the 'Wingate' Expediton. His previous operational hours are considerable and he is most strongly recommended.

    Remarks of Group Commander: In addition to the risk outlined above, this airman took the risk of encountering high perfomance Japanese Fighters on every sortie, Strongly recommended for award of D.F.M.

    Sold with photocopy recommendaton pages.
