    Default Conspicuous Gallantry Medal, W/O Claude Edward White

    The above airmen received a CGM, gazetted on the 16th of November 1943, for service with 100 Squadron. The ORB makes no mention of what his CGM was for, and the London Gazette states only that he received it, not what he received it for, i.e. no citation.

    Does anyone have a copy of the citation, or give me a heads-up as to where I can find it?

    Thanks in advance as always,

    Greg

    White (CGM) and Sergeant Leslie Charles Andrew Dowdell (DFM) share a joint citation in the London Gazette - just scroll down to Dowdell.

    Hugh / Alan,

    Thanks very much. I'm going to claim tired eyes for not seeing the actual citation against Dowdell's DFM actually right below White's CGM entry. I have no idea seriously, how I missed that!!

    Thanks again fellas,

    Greg
