    Default Godwin DFC

    Have the listing for it in the London Gazette but it doesnt do more than list him:
    http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/issues/37281/supplements/4750
    Same for Flight Global

    Try the enquiry service (for researchers) on the RAF Museum website as they were able to provide something when I asked them about a particular medal. Quite often it was for surviving a tour.... You could also try the following:
    55 Squadron Association Hon Secretary: Gary West, 15 Owston Road, Knossington, Oakham, Leicestershire LE15 8LX
    tel: 01664 454563 01664 454563 : west563 AT onetel.com (they are covering 223 Sqn aircrew). This is from the RAF Register of Assns and they seem to update regularly.

    No citation in London Gazette and apparently none in Air Ministry Bulletins. Try National Archives of Great Britain. Kew, Air 2//8751 (and if not there, Air 2/8750) for recommendation.
