Distinguished Flying Cross:
This officer is a most efficient camptain and pilot of aircraft. He has completed very many sorties and has invariably displayed a high degree of courage and determination in pressing home his attacks. On one occasion, in October, 1944, Flying Officer Williams took part in an attack on Bonn. Whilst over the target the aircraft was hit by anti-aircraft fire and sustained extensive damage. One shell exploded in the nose of the aircraft. The bomb aimer was wounded, whilst many instruments were rendered unserviceable. The bomber became extremely difficult to control. Even so, Flying Officer Williams flew the badly damaged aircraft to this country and made a safe landing at the nearest available airfield. This officer set a fine example of skill and determination in most difficult circumstances.
