"This airman has performed the duties of non-commissioned officer in charge of police at this unit with exceptional ability and keenness. In spite of the onerous nature of his duties, he has shown considerable tact in the handling of airmen. He is energetic, of sound judgement and possesses initiative above the average. He has rendered meritorious service of a high order." CRAWFORD, Warrant Officer Charles William (RAF 561511) - Air Force Cross - No.31 Air Navigation School, Port Albert, Ontario - Award effective 28 May 1943 as per London Gazette dated 2 June 1943 and AFRO 1459/43 dated 30 July 1943. "This Warrant Officer, over a period of 14 years, has established an enviable record of loyal and efficient service. Under routine and uninspiring conditions he has maintained an enthusiasm which is highly commendable. He has completed nearly 3,000 flying hours under all possible weather conditions by day and by night, the major portion of which has been logged since the commencement of hostilities. Prior to his present appointment as Staff Pilot at this Air Navigation School, he participated in a number of anti-submarine sweeps.

With the interests of the school at heart, Sergeant Curle was never satisfied with his own efforts and worked long hours to ensure that he had turned out the best possible navigators in the time available. His painstaking ability was clear to all and he was held in the highest esteem by both pupils and fellow instructors. In spite of circumstances which might easily have discouraged him he never allowed his enthusiasm to wane but maintained a continuously high standard of efficiency and keenness in his work."
