    Hi All

    Does anyone have the citation for this officer's DFC in 1944?

    All the best

    Usually, if I cannot supply a citation, I can suggest sources where one might be found. This one is a tough one. There was no citation in the London Gazette and apparently none in Air Ministry Bulletins. This brings one down to looking for an original recommendation at Kew. Searching their catalogue using "Awards" and "Asia" as key words, and restricting the time search to 1944, I come up with Air 2/9006, "South East Asia Command - DFC Awards to RAF, Dominion and American airmen".

    Although I have general citations to awards to RCAF personnel in that theatre and area, I would appreciate the text of original recommendations to RCAF personnel that might be found in the file, notably the following (No.413 Squadron):

    BAYLY, S/L George Henry
    GOWANS, S/L John Robert
    GORK, F/L Elgin Graham
    JOHNSON, Warrant Officer William Frank
    RANDALL, W/C Lawson Hunter
    RANKIN, F/O John P.
    SMITH, F/L Russell Maynard
