"These two officers have flown together as captain and observer respectively of an outstandingly success ful and efficient crew, who have consistently bombed the targets from a low altitude, returning with excellent photographs. On one occasion in August they spent 30 minutes locating the target in the face of intense opposition.
The aircraft was hit in many places, and one engine caught fire; nevertheless, the attack was pressed home in the most resolute and determined manner.
Again in August they were detailed for a mission calling for a high standard of navigation and crew co-operation, which was accomplished in a highly successful manner."
Awarded simultaneously to Harold Martin.
