    My late brother was awarded the AFC in 1951 and a Bar thereto in 1954. I have been unable to trace the recommendations for the awards and any information would be most gratefully received.

    Thanks Paul - as it happens, I do have the London Gazette entries, but what I would very much like to know now is the `what for`? Any ideas where I might find this information: JeanB

    Jean,

    The citation for the award of the 1951 AFC is contained within the file - Air 2/10106 - at The National Archives in Kew. I have a copy of this file. If you would like to provide me with your email address, I can send it through. I can not assist with the bar to his AFC.

    Jean,

    I have sent you the relevant image from the file via your email address. I would recommend that you now remove the email address or alter it in the above post, to prevent spammers using it. I have learned the hard way in this respect!
