Distinguished Flying Cross:
One night in July, 1941, this officer was detailed to attack Duisburg. In spite of searchlight concentration and heavy anti-aircraft fire, he spent 40 minutes locating the target, which was eventually successfully bombed. His aircraft was repeatedly hit and the rear turret put out of action. Over Holland, on the return journey, his aircraft was intercepted by an enemy aircraft which was shaken off by skilful avoiding action. The port engine failed and his aircraft began to lose height rapidly. All available articles were jettisoned but Squadron Leader Price was nevertheless compelled to fly at 600 feet. By skilful piloting, however, he landed safely at his base. He has always shown the utmost coolness, courage and determination.
