    Default Mentioned in Despatches (c.1939-1940).

    Hallo,

    I am looking for help regarding the above award. Were citations given with these awards and if so where might one find them ? If citations exist do they contain the unit of the individual, as per the DFC/DFM ?
    I believe a series of books - one for each service - by an author named Maton was published in recent years covering all MiD awards for World War 2 but I have no idea what information they contain.
    I have seen a few MiD lists in the London Gazette for 1939-1940 but these just contain the service number, rank, initials and surname.
    I am particularly trying to establish the unit for 522495 LAC M. Wilson whose MiD was gazetted on 20 February 1940 (page 1056) and would greatly appreciate any assistance .

    Regards,

    Martin Gleeson.

    Paul,

    Many thanks for that lead on 233 Squadron. Their ORB does record his MiD during February 1940.

    Regards,

    Martin.
