Pilot Officer Robertson has completed 44 operational sorties, 31 of which have been with the Pathfinder Force, including 24 Marker sorties.

This officer is a determined and skilful navigator of a good Blind Marking crew. His keenness for his work is only excelled by his operational zest. He is cool and unruffled, and his navigational skill has been maintained at a consistently high standard in spite of many perilous flights. He is a courageous and very useful member of his crew.

He has shown determination and devotion to duty of a high order, and I recommend him for the award of the Distinguished Flying Cross.
