Madam,

With reference to your enquiry, I am directed to append herewith details concerning the award of the Distinguished Flying Medal to your husband, as announced in the London Gazette issued on 13th August, 1943:-

[underlined] 635201 Acting Flight Sergeant George DUNMORE, No. 83 Squadron. [/underlined] This airman has participated in a large number of operational sorties against the enemy including a daylight attack on Danzig. He has invariably displayed coolness and resourcefulness in the face of enemy opposition. On one occasion during September, 1942, Flight Sergeant Dunmore’s presence of mind and skill were material factors in the safe return to base of his aircraft [inserted] and [/inserted] its crew.

I am, Madam,
Your obedient Servant,
