    Default DFC Ciation Please

    As above please, for S/L Richard COLLARD, 32121, Gazetted on the 17-1-41 for service with 37 Squadron. I've checked the LG site and he's listed, but no citation.

    TIA,

    Greg

    The same London Gazette which reported his DFC (without citation) also reported DFMs (without citations) to Sergeants Jack Blyth and Reginald Charles Dunbar. also of No.37 Squadron. Although there were no published citations, Ian Tavender found the texts of recommendations in AIR 2/9250 (British National Archives, Kew) and I suggest that the same document will likely have the text of the recommendation to Collard's DFC.
