Distinguished Flying Cross:
One night in July, 1942, this officer participated in an attack on Tobruk. In spite of heavy and accurate anti-aircraft fire, he made repeated runs over the target area and his work facilitated the attacks made by following aircraft. His aircraft was severely damaged by enemy fire but, displaying skilful airmanship, he succeeded in flying it safely back to one of our landing grounds where he made a safe landing. Throughout the operation, this officer displayed great courage and determination to accomplish his task. On a previous occasion, Pilot Officer Dudley displayed great courage when he vigorously attacked Tobruk from a height of 1,500 feet.
