    Default Fg Off James Eli Foley DFC RAFVR

    Dear all,

    I am on the hunt for the DFC rec / citation for the above named officer and was hoping that someone could assist me please? The DFC was announced in the London Gazette of the 19th of January 1945 and was awarded in the rank of Warrant Officer for his time on 608 Sqn. My interest mainly lies with his time on 156 Lancs, although he also flew on 460 and 139 Sqns.
    As an aside, I have already captured the online information contained within the sale of his medals / log book.

    Many thanks in advance

    Jonny
