    I wonder if someone would look up the DFM citation for 742486 Flt Sgt Peter Sleight, (61 Squadron), gazetted on 24 October 1941 please?

    Many thanks

    From Ian Tavender’s book “The Distinguished Flying Medal Register for the Second World War” : -

    Sleight, Peter 742486 F/Sgt. No. 61 Sqn.
    L.G. 24/10/1941, Sorties 33, Flying hours 203.05. Pilot. Air2/8904.

    This NCO has pressed home his attacks against all targets with great vigour and has spared no efforts to see and identify his targets. The high quality of his bombing confirmed by photographs when he has taken a camera has been the result of a keenness and determination on operations which have been exemplary.
    26th. August 1941.
