    Default Stanley Noel PEARCE (77199)

    Hi All,

    I am looking for the DFC citation for S/L S.N. Pearce 77199. I am in touch with his son and he would like to know why he received the award.

    Pearce is ex 30 Sqn Blenheim pilot 1940 and went on to fly with PRU's.

    Best regards,
    Simon

    Hello

    No citation and no unit in the London Gazette :

    http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/issues/35621/supplements/2980

    Entering "Pearce" and "77199" in the Londong Gazette search engine, limiting to WW2, gives 9 hits :

    http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/issues/1939-03-15;1948-12-31/all=pearce+77199;event=world-war-ii/start=1

    Michael Maton in "Honour the Air Forces" gives his unit at 2 PRU.

    Up to others to suggest references of files at Kew for the recommendation, or about his flight as a PRU pilot.

    Thanks Joss.

    I advised Pearce's son that he may have to visit Kew. Its a bit difficult for him as he lives in France however I am sure we will work something out.

    I will advise him of the Gazette pages.

    Regards,
    Simon
