    Default Flt. Lt. E.W.D. Creed DFC

    Hello all ... I'm trying to find the citation for my father's DFC. I have been searching fruitlessly in the Supplements to the London Gazette. He noted down in his log book that it was awarded on 29th January 1945. I have managed to find it listed in Flight magazine dated 25th October 1945. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    Would just like to add his Service No. 115699 and he was with 43 squadron at the time.

    His DFC is in the London gazette as a 'general citation' i.e. one with no actual detail. It may have been awarded at the completion of a tour of operations. I take it your father is no longer with us, do you have his log book?

    Yes Daz I do have it. Could you tell me the date it appeared in the London Gazette?

    I've just found it in TLG so there wouldn't be an individual citation then?

    Hello Penny,

    Reason for award not always listed in TLG particularly when numerous awards listed per issue.

    Try looking in the AIR 2 section of the National Archives - think this can be searched online.

    Regards,

    Ian
