    Default W.O George Robson.

    Can anyone tell me how to go about obtaining the DFM citation for W.O 562271 Geroge Robson, who was KIA on 02/06/1942. He was shot down in R 5844 over Essen. Thanks.

    His award was Gazetted on 23 December 1941 to the then Sgt G Robson of
    106 Squadron . The citation should be available from TNA/PRO and I'm sure someone else will post the relevant AIR reference .

    There might be something in Flight Global too... Both LG and FG might only show his name. Someone else on here may well be able to pull up the actual citation for you if not try the RAF Museum at Hendon.

    Sgt. G. ROBSON, No. 106 Squadron.

    Sgt. Robson has acted as navigator on over 50 raids against the enemy, including low level attacks on enemy mechanised units and troop concentrations during the fighting in France. Throughout he has shown outstanding ability and courage.
