Flying Office Wallace has completed 34 operational sorties, 22 of which have been with the Pathfinder Force.

This officer is a keen and reliable pilot. He has carried out his sorties in this squadron with great determination and zest. His good captaincy has achieved a fine crew spirit and resulted in good operational results. He has plenty of grit and presses home his attacks with great keenness.

Flying Officer Wallace has shown enthusiasm, loyalty and devotion to duty of a high order, and I recommend him for the award of the Distinguished Flying Cross.
