    Default Looking for DFC citation and recommendation F/L Charles Duckett - 83 Squadron

    This DFC appeared in Flight magazine June 8 1944 with no details. I am trying to get some information on it for his son. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    There is an excellent chance that the recommendation will be found in file AIR 2/9339 in the National Archives, Kew (south London). At least four DFM awards to members of No.83 Squadron were reported in the London Gazette which included Duckett's DFC - in all cases the recommendation for said DFMs was found by Tavender in that file.
