    Default four DFM and a DFC for a 619 Squadron crew

    Hello,

    Firstly I wish for all those here a Happy New year !

    Now, the crew of P/O Leith John Warner from 619 Squadron got four DFM and a DFC (for Warner), Sgt A M McInulty flight engineer, F/S Peter Vincent James Lowen Navigator, F/S L Aitken Air Bomber, and Sgt R Waterson the wireless Operator.

    Do you know if it was for a special action during their tour ?

    Thank you for your help, Alain.

    Alain,

    The four DFMs were gazetted at the same time and Ian Tavender's book shows them to be end of tour (non-immediate) awards. In other words not for one specific action. The four recommendations are quite similar as one would expect if they were from the same crew. The officer's DFC was gazetted some 2 months later and I would guess that this was also a non-immediate award.

    Regards

    Jim
