Does anyone have information on this RAF officer? He was awarded the Empire Gallantry Medal for an action in September 1939 and exchanged this for a George Cross in September 1941. There is an entry in the London Gazette on 23 March 1943 that says he was 'dismissed the Service by sentence of General Court Martial, 5 March 1943'.
I have looked at the National Archive and have been unable to find information about the offence that led to his dismissal (perhaps I haven't looked in the right places).
With him being the holder of the GC, one would think he had some currency to help him during his Court Martial, so his offence must have been pretty egregious. Does anyone know what he did that was so wrong?
There is a short biography of him on the website vconline.org.uk that says he relinquished his RAF commission but this seems to be a polite way of putting it when compared to the notice in the London Gazette.
Any information appreciated.
