No. 35 (Madras Presidency) Squadron, Royal Air Force
Awarded on:

"Throughout the 57 attacks against the enemy in which he has taken part, Pilot Officer Adams has consistently maintained a very high standard of efficiency. He is an operator of special equipment and, on many occasions, has played a vital part in attacks against enemy targets.
He always displays the most praiseworthy determination and coolness under the heaviest fire and by his keenness to fly against the enemy whenever possible, he sets a very fine example to his fellow Air Bombers. In recognition of this officer's record of accuracy and reliability, and the part he has played in bombing attacks against the enemy, he is recommended for the non-immediate award of the Distinguished Flying Cross.
Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC)
