DOBBS, F/L James Frederick (RAF 45881) - Air Force Cross - No.31 Air Navigation School, Port Albert, Ontario - Awarded 1 January 1944 as per London Gazette of that date as per AFRO 113/44 dated 21 January 1944. Granted Permanent Commission in Aircraft Control Branch as Flight Lieutenant, 5 January 1947. Retired 1 January 1955.

As a staff pilot this officer has at all times shown a keen interest in his flying duties. His personal qualities of loyalty and dependability together with his outstanding devotion to duty and efficient service under routine and uninspiring conditions have made him a fine example to all with whom he comes in contact. Flight Lieutenant Dobbs has flown a total of 2,380 hours, 808 of which have been completed at night and 174 on anti-submarine patrols.

A question for anyone reading this post - any idea of his anti-submarine patrols ? Where ? What unit ?
