"This officer, a Flight Commander, has completed fourteen sorties against the enemy. This experienced pilot has shown cool courage and a workmanlike precision in his approach to the job of bombing the enemy and through his aggressive spirit has pressed home the attack on every occasion. S/L Aldred's wide experience in the service has particularly suited him for his position, and he has rendered valuable assistance and guidance to those who serve under him. In recognition of this officer's unquestioned courage and complete devotion to duty, I recommend he be awarded a non-immediate Distinguished Flying Cross."
