I would like to find the DFM citation for Flt/Sgt ELJ Anderson RAAF, who, as a sergeant, participated in the 11 Sqn attack on the Japanese carrier task force off Ceylon on 9 April 1942. The London Gazette issue published on 13 July 1943 has only the following:

Distinguished Flying Medal.

Aus. 404160 Flight Sergeant (now Pilot Officer) Edward Leslie James ANDERSON, Royal Australian Air Force, No. 11 Squadron.

(three more names)

The above awards are for gallantry and devotion to duty in the execution of air operations.

Is there some other website which might have the actual citation?

Hi Rob,

A9300, 10th page from 30

Mojmir, thanks very much for your help.

FYI, the file you flagged has two somewhat different versions of Anderson's DFM citation - the one on page 10 and another on page 20. The latter seems more likely to be the final version.

Thanks again,
