Period:
Second World War (1939-1945)
Rank:
Flying Officer
Unit:
No. 419 (Moose) Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force
Awarded on:
January 16th, 1945
Recommendation:
"Flying Officer Angus has successfully completed 30 operational day and night sorties against the enemy. Included in these sorties are many attacks on the enemy's most heavily defended areas.
By his example of steadfastness under all circumstances, he has materially assisted a crew which started operating rather shakily, to become an above average operational combination.
The standard of navigation Flying Officer Angus has set has been such that his track-keeping and timing has enabled his aircraft to escape enemy attention throughout his tour.
I consider the dependability, loyalty and determination of this excellent Navigator fully merits the non-immediate award of the Distinguished Flying Cross."
Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC)
