S/Ldr. H.M. Birch, 10 Squadron RAAF; DFC citation look-up needed.Hello, Citation: Distinguished Flying Cross. AUS756 Squadron Leader H. M. Birch, RAAF. This officer has been engaged on operations since the war began. He has had a unique record for the number of distinguished visitors he has flown to the Middle East and Mediterranean since the commencement of hostilities. He has participated in three air combats* and on one occasion, when attacked by two Junkers Ju88, he destroyed one and damaged the other. Although displaying dash during these engagements, he has never endangered the lives of his crew and has flown his aircraft safely back. He has set an excellent example. London Gazette No.35206.

List of Guinea Pig Club MembersHello, One that might be a little difficult to find due to the variation in surnames - D. D. MARTIN. In actual fact; 42047 Derek Dudley Martin BUTCHER RAF. F/O Derek BUTCHER, was the Captain of No.210 Sqn Sunderland I P9624 which crashed on landing at Oban on 15 March, 1941. I'll let John Evans (author of, Sopwiths to Sunderlands), take up the tale: "Derek Martin, seriously injured, spent three weeks in the West Highlands Hospital, Oban, before being transferred to the plastic surgery hospital at East Grinstead where he was a patient under the legendary Archibald McIndoe. He became one of the famous 'Guinea Pigs' whose appearances after accidents or severe burns were transformed by the skills of McIndoe and his team. Derek Martin was the lone Coastal Command 'Guinea Pig' among all those from Fighter Command and Bomber Command and other services." See: Sopwiths to Sunderlands 210 Squadron 1917 to 1941. Evans,John. Pembroke Dock:Paterchurch Publications,1999. pp.66-7 See also: CCL1/105. Derek Butcher had previously served on No.10 (RAAF) Sqn. He was aboard Sunderland I P9602:RB-G, on 2 September, 1940, when it hit Lismore Island and ran aground, being written off. (see: CCL1/60). Butcher had a list of post-nominals which I'm not even going to attempt to repeat, but can be seen here: [url]https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/46029/supplement/8291[/url] - and add a MiD to that lot!
