View Full Version : DFC awards - unpublished citations

14th November 2007, 20:30
This is to draw attention to a thread on the old board, best explained by my remarks which prefaced the lists that followed:

"For some time I have been compiling citations for awards where no text was found in the London Gazette. This task is incomplete and on-going, but I think it time to let others see the results to date and partake of any portion they need.

"The following does not include awards to RCAF personnel, Canadians enrolled in the RAF, or RAF personnel serving in RCAF squadrons (all on line at Air Force Association of Canada website).

"The list is not consistent; lately I have been noting earlier awards (BEM, GM, etc) before the DFC, but this is true of only a portion of the list.

"Date is date ol London Gazette (sometimes with a notation, "wef" meaning it was effective from an earlier date.

"DFC = Distinguished Flying Cross, DFC* = Bar to Distinguished Flying Cross, etc.

"1/2 means I have only a partial citation owing to a missing document or indistinct microfilm.

"Persons interested in a text can contact me at hughhall AT allstream DOT net."
