Since October, 1942, Sergeant Double has taken part as Bomb Aimer in 27 operational sorties. over enemy territory and has completed 154 hours operational flying. These operations include a daylight attack on Essen and night attacks on Duisberg (2), Hamburg (2), Stuttgart and Mannheim as well as numerous sorties on other targets in Germany and France and the laying of mines in enemy waters. Under a calm and quiet manner, he hides a fine offensive spirit. He has always pressed home his attacks with the utmost determination, frequently in the face of strong enemy opposition. This action has inspired his crew and contributed in a large measure to the success of his operations. I strongly recommend that he is awarded the Distringuished Flying Medal.
