Recommendation:
"Warrant Officer Jack is an operator of special equipment who has repeatedly demonstrated his skill and, on many occasions, there can be no doubt that upon his accuracy and reliability depended the success of the attack. He has now completed a total of 41 operations and attacked such heavily defended targets as Berlin, Schweinfurt, Stuttgart and Nuremburg, as well as achieving much success during the attacks before and after 6th June 1944.


At all times, Warrant Officer Jack showed keenness to fly against the enemy and his determination to achieve the most precise results on the target were praiseworthy, and it is considered that his fine record of service merits the non-immediate award of the Distinguished Flying Cross."
