    Default 201647 Flying Officer Jack Joseph Duncombe AFC

    I'm trying to find any details of the award of the AFC to F/O Duncombe, it was in the LG supplement of 2 January 1950 - is there a citation for this award available? From the date would this award be part of the New YEars honours list?

    Thanks in advance

    I may have found the answer to my own question, the Flight archives about the New Years Honours list mention the Berlin Airlift and shows F/O Duncombes award.

    Citations to postwar AFC awards are very hard to find but in this case you may be able to strike pay dirt - specifically, document Air 2/10307 in the British National Archives at Kew. This dealt in detail with several such awards.

    If you find the citations, would you please supply me with copies of the texts, so that I might share them with our wider community. As it stands, I have citations for F/L John Temperley Hitching, F/L Reginald Roland Houseby and Flying Officer Lorne Arthur Tapp - wish I had copied the lot when I had the chance ten years ago !
