    Not yet

    Many years ago, when dinousaurs roamed the earth and I had more hair, I was compiling information on awards to RCAF persons decorated for Second World War services (a continuing project). About 2006 I realized that, in the course of said RCAF research, I had incidentally acquired some information on awards to RAF and related personnel (mainly because their citations appeared on the same page of a Kew document as a Canadian citation) and I transcribed them. Since then, with the help of several other persons resident in the UK (I live in Canada) I have acquired many more such RAF and associated citations, which I try to share as widely as possible. But to date I have not acquired, through what I call my "network of spies", the citations for 1 January 1946 MBEs and OBEs. As of this moment I have citations for about 20 MBEs and ten OBEs gazetted that date (from my earlier research).

    While I hope to have more complete information in the future, I cannot lean too heavily on my "spies" (who do unpaid work for me whilst researching their own projects). Indeed, were I to acquire the appropriate information tomorrow, I would be pressed to transcribe and share the data, given that I am currently (among other things) processing a very large number of awards (BEM, MBE, OBE, ARRC, RRC) that were gazetted in June 1946.

    Feel free to inquire again in a couple of months.

    BURR, Robert, F/L, DFC (127536, RAFVR*) - Bomber Command Instructor School, Finningley - Air Force Cross - awarded as per London Gazette dated 1 January 1946. Public Record Office Air 2/9117, courtesy of Steve Brew, has recommendation for an AFC, intended for September 1945 list and drafted when he had flown 1,042 hours, 450 on instructional duties and 170 in previous six months.

    This officer has been a pilot instructing at this unit since December 1944, when the school was first formed. He was previously employed as a conversion instructor at an operational training unit for approximately twelve months. He has proved himself to be a very capable and conscientious instructor and his enthusiasm for both air and ground work is outstanding. His energy and initiative are largely responsible for the very high standard that his pupils have reached on completion of the course.

    Resubmitted in Air 2/9144 for New Year 1946 Honours List with the same hours cited and a slightly different text:

    This officer has been a pilot instructing at this unit since December 1944, when the school was first formed. Prior to this he was employed as a conversion instructor at an operational training unit for approximately twelve months. He has proved himself to be a very capable and conscientious instructor and his enthusiasm for both air and ground work is outstanding. His additional energy and initiative are largely responsible for the very high standard that his pupils have reached on completion of the course.

    D’ALTON, Derrick John, A/S/L, DFC (77206, RAFVR*) - Station Ballah, Middle East Command - Air Force Cross - awarded as per London Gazette dated 1 January 1946. Public Record Office Air 2/9144, courtesy of Steve Brew, has citation drafted when he had flown 700 hours, 150 on current duties, 50 in previous six months.

    "Squadron Leader Dalton commanded the Gunnery Leaders’ courses at this unit from their commencement in June 1943 until March 1945, during which period he was almost entirely responsible for the formation of “B” Squadron which runs these courses and for the improvements which were constantly introduced into the syllabus, Only his immense drive and expert knowledge of the problems of free gunnery could have given the 250 gunnery leaders who have passed through this school during the period of his command the accurate and up to date knowledge they have gained."
