Distinguished Service Order:
Since being awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross this officer has completed a very many sorties, involving attacks on well defended targets. He has displayed unfailing devotion to duty throughout and his example of gallantry and leadership has inspired all. On many occasions his aircraft has been damaged by enemy action but in every instance, Squadron Leader Munro has flown safely to base. His achievements have been worthy of the greatest praise.
