    Default 50517 Flt Lt G A M Gallop DFC.

    Begging the indulgence of the Board once again please.

    Would anyone have the citation for the Gentleman above's DFC? he was apparently awarded the DFC in August of 1944 while with 15 Squadron. His tour appears to have run from May to October 1944.

    I can't verify the truth of the information given above, it's just what I've been given. I can't find his DFC in the London Gazette but that may well be a result of my ineptitude in searching the site.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Kevin mears.

    Hi Kev,

    Carter confirms the entry given by Amrit and omits any citation.

    Thanks to both of you for the very quick responses. Would the lack of a citation point to it being an end of tour award?

    Default Gallop DFC

    The award was most likely a "periodic" DFC - "end of tour" is an appropriate description. There should still be a recommendation for the award. I suggest (with a sense of probability rather than certainty) that it is at Kew in AIR 2/8882.
