    Default Wing Commander Eric Clarke AFC 233 squadron

    Can anyone tell me where I might find the citation for Eric's Air Force Cross which I believe he won in 1941?

    Thanks

    CLARKE, Eric Hugh Paul, S/L (34038, Royal Air Force) - No.3 Service Flying Training School - Air Force Cross - awarded as per London Gazette dated 1 January 1941. Killed in action 15 March 1942 while a Wing Commander, No.233 Squadron. Public Record Office Air 2/6116 has recommendation, as does Air 2.8887.

    This officer has been in command of the Intermediate Training Squadron since the commencement of hostilities and has carried out a difficult task with zeal and efficiency. The fact that training has proceeded smoothly, and a high standard attained in spite of all difficulties, reflects great credit on this officer.
