Period:
Second World War (1939-1945)
Rank:
Pilot Officer
Unit:
No. 419 (Moose) Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force
Awarded on:
September 25th, 1945
Recommendation:
"Pilot Officer Andrew has completed thirty-one operational sorties against many of Germany's hottest targets. He has proved himself to be an extremely valuable member of his crew and on many occasions his cool and reliable instructions have resulted in eluding enemy fighters. On two occasions the skilful manipulation of his guns have damaged and driven off attacking fighters.
I consider the courageous example set by this officer and his selfless devotion to duty fully merits the award of the D.F.C. (Non-Immediate)."
Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC)
