    Default Frearson 460 Squadron

    Hi guys

    Does anyone happen to have the citation for the DFC for F/O KEITH SEPTIMUS FREARSON (Aus427819), 460 Squadron?

    I've looked on the NAA but his files haven't been digitised. It was LG'd 21 September, 1945.

    Cheers

    Hello Armit
    I have succesfuly managed to obtain scans of citations for awards to Australian airmen for free. They will email you a PDF file for no charge.
    This is how I obtained them in the post.
    Search for your mans records on the NAA web site using his service number.
    In the case of your man it returns 2 results.
    Click on the link under Control symbol for the record in the AWM65 series.
    Click on request a copy.
    Click on the link 'how to order'
    then click on 'ReQUEST Service'
    select 'Copy cost Estimate'
    Fill in your details - submit.
    The last couple of times I have used this service the relevent pages were emailed to me free of charge in about a week.
    Regards
    Andy

    Default DFC Citation

    Hi Armit,

    I have all the Aussie DFC citations, his is listed as a general citation which was given after a tour of operations. If you need the exact wording let me know.

    Cheers,

    John.

    Hi Amrit,

    They run along these lines F/O Keith Septiums Frearson has completed numerous operations against the enemy, in the course of which he has invariably displayed the utmost fortitude, courage and devotion to duty.

    The book I have on the DFC's only lists his as a general citation but the above is pretty standard thought the wording may vary a little but they are generally the same.

    Cheers,

    John.
