"Flight Sergeant Aitcheson is an outstanding bomb aimer who has had a most successful operational career. On one occasion he both navigated the aircraft and bombed the target during an attack on the submarine base at Lorient, thereby completing a most successful operation. Whatever the operation he invariably guided his captain to the centre of the target before releasing his bombs. His splendid record of courage and undaunted determination have been an inspiration to all the squadron."
