    TRIPTREE, Douglas Walter, S/L (41966, Royal Air Force) - No.42 Operational Training Unit - Air Force Cross - awarded as per London Gazette dated 2 June 1943. Public Record Office Air 2/9609 (courtesy Steve Brew) has citation, drafted when he had flown 720 instructional hours (141 in previous six months).

    This officer has specialised in night flying training. His work has been characterised by the individual attention with which he has watched the progress of all the pupils in his squadron. He is a most able and painstaking flying instructor who has consistently shown great determination to ensure that all his pupils attain the standard required.
