"In August, 1940, whilst engaged on a night patrol, Flight Lieutenant Adams sighted an enemy aircraft about a mile ahead. He chased it for fifty minutes and, although out of radio telephony communication with his base for most of the time, he eventually contacted the enemy off the South Coast. He attacked the enemy aircraft over the sea and, it is believed, destroyed it. He returned to his base and landed with both petrol gauges reading nil.
Flight Lieutenant Adams has been continuously employed on night flying duties since the commencement of hostilities and has displayed conspicuous devotion to duty throughout."
Second DFC awarded as a bar.
