This airman was killed in action with No.156 Squadron, 29 August 1942.
He was subsequently Mentioned in Despatches, 1 January 1943.
I have discovered (via Air 2/8871) that he has earlier been recommended for an Air Force Medal for services at No.10 Operational Training Unit.
The recommendation read:
"This airman has completed 685 hours flying during the last twelve months, 175 hours of which have been at night. He has been employed as a wireless operator/air gunner instructor in the Anson Flight and his enthusiasm, untiring energy and meticulous attention to detail have set an excellent example. Sergeant Jack has recently been reposted to operations."
