    Hello,

    For those with an interest in such things.

    Additional Information on:

    139880 F/O (A & S.D) Noel Alfred PERROTTET MID RAAF.

    The Citation for the MID issued to F/O Perrottet is as follows:

    For services rendered in (the) First Tactical Air Force.

    "F/O Perrottet is an expert photographic interpreter. He set out all installations in Noemfor and Labuan so well that plans made before the invasion had to receive little alteration to suit the terrain conditions on landing.
    Soon after arrival in New Guinea, F/O Perrottet contracted a serious tropical skin disease, which necessitated him living at No. 22 Medical Clearing Station whilst working at No. 62 Airfield Construction Wing Headquarters. He begged not to be evacuated, and carried on under extreme difficulties and personal distress with outstanding success. His devotion to duty and good example were a source of inspiration to all who served with him."

    Col.
