I am researching a local chap from our village for the coming Remembrance Day:-

Pilot Officer David Henry Davis
44271 59 Sqdn RAF
Died 1/8/40

The records show he was twice mentioned in Despatches and also received the AFM

Given that he died early in the war in 1940 he must have worked hard to get them!

Can anyone help provide info on what he did to obtain these awards?

I am doing a presentation at local school for Remembrance Day!

Many thanks
