    FITZJOHN, Frank Horatio, P/O (155357, RAFVR*) - No.120 Squadron - Distinguished Flying Cross - awarded as per London Gazette dated 7 December 1943. Citation in Air Ministry Bulletin 12235.

    "Pilot Officer Fitzjohn has taken part in thirteen sightings and eight attacks on enemy submarines. He has been an outstanding member of two very successful crews, in which he has been largely responsible for fostering a fine fighting spirit and excellent cooperation."

    It is probable that a more detailed recommendation will be found in Kew (recommend Air 2/5027 but no promises).
