Distinguished Flying Medal:
During the past 12 months Flight Sergeant Ellis has carried out many operational sorties. He has displayed a high degree of skill and initiative. In January, 1942, he assisted in the destruction of a hostile aircraft after a long pursuit. Some time later, in extremely unfavourable flying weather, his skilful and accurate directions enabled his pilot to overcome a difficult situation and make a safe landing. During a sortie in June, 1942, he performed excellent work in an engagement with an enemy aircraft which was probably destroyed. This airman has always maintained a very high standard of efficiency, while his devotion to duty has set a very fine example.
