Citations

Distinguished Flying Cross:
In June, 1942, this officer captained an aircraft which participated in an attack on an Italian naval force. Despite poor visibility and in the face of an intense defensive barrage, he courageously pressed home his attacks from a very low altitude. His complete disregard of danger and his determination set a splendid example. This officer has completed numerous sorties and he has invariably displayed daring of a high degree.
