Transcription

Act. Sqn. Ldr. E.J. SAUNDERS, D.F.C., R.A.F.V.R., No. 128 Sqn., and Act. Sqn. Ldr. R.G. St. C. WADSWORTH, D.F.C., R.A.F.V.R., No. 692 Sqn. These members of aircraft crew have completed very many sorties against enemy targets. In January, 1945, they were detailed for an operation which necessitated releasing heavy bombs from low level at the openings to various tunnels on the enemy’s railway system leading to the Western front. The mission called for a high degree of skill. The good results obtained reflects the greatest credit on the efforts of the personnel mentioned, who through a dangerous and difficult sortie displayed exceptional ability, great determination and devotion to duty.
