    Your best bet to find a recommendation is National Archives (Kew), AIR 2/9051, with AIR 2/9050 as a distant second choice.

    In the event that you (or someone working on your behalf) examine the above, I would appreciate copies of recommendations (if found) for George Dutch STEWART and Digby Hugh Callis WILLOUGHBY, both members of the RAF awarded the DFC for services in No.405 Squadron.

    Hi Hugh,

    I recently looked at AIR 2/9051 it seems to be mostly Distinguished Flying Medals, almost no Distinguished Flying Crosses.

    Trying to narrow down the files, some DFMs LG 23/3/45 listed as AIR 2/9054

    Thanks again
