    Pavel, Here is the citation for his DFM, and his commissioning entry:
    Air Ministry, 11th June, 1943.
    ROYAL AIR FORCE.
    The KING has been graciously pleased to approve the following awards in recognition of gallantry displayed in flying operations against the enemy:
    Distinguished Flying Medal.
    1354747 Flight Sergeant Albert Ernest KINDELL, No. 107 Squadron.
    In May, 1943, this airman was wireless operator/air gunner of the leading aircraft of a bomber force which attacked an air field at Poix. During the operation fighter opposition was encountered. In the ensuing attacks, Flight Sergeant Kindell displayed exceptional skill, contributing materially to the safe return of the formation. This airman set a praiseworthy example.
