Gallantry in Action: Airmen Awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and Two Bars 1918-1955

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Norman Franks

Narrated By: Matthew Waterson

Date: August 2019

Duration: 7 hours 41 minutes

Summary:

Between 1918 and 1955 sixty airmen were awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC) and Two Bars. In this book recorded for the first time together are the mini-biographies of those sixty along with the citations that accompanied their awards, or in some cases the recommendations for them. Also recorded are citations for other decorations such as the Distinguished Service Order, et al. The recommendations were often longer than the actual citations themselves, and during periods of large numbers of all types of awards, these citations did not make it into the London Gazette, recording name of the recipient only.

As the listener will discover, the range of airmen who received the DFC and Two Bars cover most of the ambit of World War II operations, be they fighter pilots, bomber pilots, night-fighter aircrew, aircrew navigators, engineers, etc, or reconnaissance pilots. Each has interesting stories, proving, if proof be needed, their gallantry in action.
