Second World War (1939-1945)
Pilot Officer
No. 405 (Vancouver) Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force
Awarded on:
January 19th, 1945
"Pilot Officer Allard is a keen and capable Air Gunner now on his second tour of operations. He has participated in attacks on such strongly defended enemy areas as Berlin, Frankfurt and Stettin. On may occasions this officer has been placed in great personal danger through contact with enemy fighters, but he has not faltered and pressed home his attacks to the full. His keen sense of responsibility and devotion to duty, even under the most adverse conditions, has been an inspiration to his crew and undoubtedly contributed greatly towards their continued operational success. Strongly recommended for the non-immediate award of the Distinguished Flying Cross."
Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC)
