    Default F/Lt. John WHITE, 937248, D.F.C. - citation?

    Hello everyone

    Flight Lieutenant John White, 937248, of 223 Sqn, was awarded the D.F.C., gazetted May 22nd 1945. I wondered could possibly help with a citation?

    Many thanks,

    Regards

    Simon

    Hello again - back with a little more info.

    In the same issue of the LG, three 223 Squadron pilots were gazetted with the D.F.C. - F/Lt. Alan Allnutt 130165, Act. F/Lt. Robert Miller Hastie 158979 and F/Lt. Abram Louis Dyck C.12593, R.C.A.F.

    In the book "Special Ops Liberators" by Steve Bond and Richard Forder, Allnut's crew has a F/O J. White as a member, listed as a Special Operator.

    Regards

    Simon

    I found the recommendation for Dyck at Kew - Air 2/9069 (Part 1) - and you may have similar luck.
