    Default F/O Geoffrey John North Award of DFC

    Has anyone access to Tavenders to see if there is a citation for the award of the DFC to rear gunner F/O G J North.
    I have found the London Gazette entry.

    Page 4330 SUPPLEMENT TO THE LONDON GAZETTE, 19 SEPTEMBER, 1944

    Geoffrey John NORTH (173836), R.A.F.V.R., No.. 76 squadron

    My thanks in advance.

    Paul,

    Did you mean Carter rather than Tavender?

    The Carters' book has a one line entry but no citation and I couldn't find any reference when going through some of Chaz Bowyer's papers either.

    I have not been able to search the Air Ministry Bulletin and could not find a citation in Flight magazine.

    Colin,
    Thanks for your response, as the Gazette has it listed with many others I would imagine it was a non immediate for duty with 76 squadron. G J North was a gunner, usually rear but sometimes upper.
