    Default DFC Citation Needed Please

    Hi all, I'm looking for a citation for P/O Douglas Harold Chapman, , 177098, 100 Sqn, whose DFC has an LG date of 19th September 1944. He had been commissioned on June 5th of the same year, and finished his tour the day after, so I suspect it could be an "end of tour" award. I've checked the LG website and there's nothing on there for him. In the absence of anyone being able to produce a citation, could anyone supply a National Archives reference that I could look in the next time I'm at Kew?

    Many thanks as always,

    Greg

    Yes, a periodic award. You will want to see the recommendation, most likely British National Archives, Kew, document Air 2/9276 (note, "most likely" rather than "guaranteed".

    Thanks Hugh, I'll pull that file the next time I'm there. If I find it, do you want me to email you a copy?
