Distinguished Flying Cross:
Flying Officer MAGEE has been actively engaged in operational flying as air observer since November 1942, and has, since that date, completed 140 hours of flying against the enemy.
He has proved himself to be a cool and efficient observer and the clear concise manner in which he has reported enemy activity has proved of invaluable assistance to his pilot. As squadron navigator officer his continued efforts have set a high standard of navigation in the unit.
In December 1942 on the occasion of a sudden attack by an enemy aircraft which made a surprise appearance many miles from enemy territory, his vigilence in observing this sudden attack enabled his pilot to successfully take evasive action and return to the base in safety.
Flying Officer MAGEE has always shown courage and devotion to duty of the highest order. His determination and efficiency are an example to his squadron.
