    The Birmingham Daily Post of August 16th 1941 reports his D.F.C. award:

    "Flying Officer Leonard David Mostyn Scott, No. 145 Squadron, who receives the D.F.C., was born at Rugby in 1915. His father lives in Liverpool. He has taken part in thirty-two sweeps over enemy territory, and has displayed the utmost gallantry throughout."

    Regards

    Peter and Simon,
    Sincere thanks to you both, I have been after this for 4 years. I will have to find where the 41876 came about.
