    Default DFM citations 1940, Sgts Applebee and Hawkins.

    Hallo,

    The London Gazette on 22 October 1940 lists, among many others, Sgt. Eric William Applebee 537379 and Sgt. Albert John Hawkins 580514 as having been awarded the DFM. I suspect theirs was a joint award, along with F/Lt. Simon Napier Leslie Maude 37865.

    Could someone please check the official citation for me please ? Is there any mention within of the unit (should be 114 Squadron) or the crew positions of the NCOs ? Or a date and target for the action for which they received the award ?

    Regards,

    Martin Gleeson.

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

    Appleby, Eric William : 537379 Sergeant (Air Gunner) No. 114 Sqn. Note spelling of surname
    Hawkins, Albert John : 580514 Sergeant (Air Observer)
    LG 22/10/1940 Air 2/9467

    F/Lt. Maude, Sergeant Hawkins and Sergeant Appleby have carried out 15 operational sorties. On 3rd. August 1940, they were Pilot, Navigator and Air Gunner respectively of an aircraft detailed to carry out an attack on the aerodrome of St. Omer. Owing to low cloud and bad visibility, they were forced to abandon their task but, on the return flight, they observed and attacked an armoured train and some barges on a canal, direct hits being scored. They also carried out, in the face of intense anti-aircraft fire, a low-flying attack with front and rear guns on aircraft dispersed around an aerodrome and a parade of German soldiers. During this attack, F/Lt. Maude was slightly wounded. They have always displayed great courage and determination in all their operations and their success has been largely due to their excellent team work.
    29th. August 1940.

    Although Nick and Carol Carter’s book “The Distinguished Flying Cross and how it was Won 1939-1945” does not record the text of the citation, A/F/Lt. Simon Napier Leslie Maude 37865 RAF 114 Sqn. was awarded the DFC - LG 22/10/1940:6136.

    As a point of interest, he was awarded a bar to the DFC when A/WC RAFO. RAF Station Church Fenton. LG 24/12/1943:5588

    Hallo Jim,

    Many thanks for the complete and speedy reply. It tidies up several issues for me on that action.
