    Default F/Lt A A N Breckon RNZAF DFC and Sgt E P Williams RNZAF DFM, 75 Sqn.

    Hello,

    F/Lt. A.A.N. Breckon RNZAF appeared in the London Gazette on 13 September 1940 when his DFC was announced. Likewise for Sgt. E.A. Williams RNZAF with the DFM on 30 July 1940. Could anyone please tell me if either citation was specifically for or mentioned special reconnaissance flights to Narvik and Trondheim during April 1940 ?

    Regards,

    Martin Gleeson.

    Hello Col,

    Thanks for those links, the second especially. It seems neither received their award specifically for these April 1940 flights but rather in part for same.

    Regards,

    Martin.
