I am trying to track down my grandfather’s DFC and AFC citations and recommendations, and have been directed here as somewhere that might be able to help. He is 94 now and has never seen them so it would be fantastic to find them.

His relevant details are:

• Neil Kenneth McCallum

• 104069V - SAAF - Flight Lieutenant - 40 Squadron ~1940-46

• 59350 - RAF - Squadron Leader - Chief Flying Instructor, then 79 Squadron ~1946-55

The DFC and AFC awards are listed in the London Gazette without citation. The DFC on 21st August 1945 (p4225), and the AFC on 1st January 1949 (p31).

Any help/pointers would be very much appreciated!

Many thanks,
