THE DISTINGUISHED FLYING MEDAL REGISTER FOR THE SECOND WORLD WAR.

By: IAN TAVENDER

Approximately six and a half thousand Distinguished Flying Medals were awarded for the Second World War, but it is perhaps surprising just how many were gazetted without citation. These ‘non-immediate’ or ‘periodic’ awards, although equally hard-earned as their ‘immediate’ counterparts, were gazetted without any citation details at all. Even a substantial number of ‘immediate’ citations were just abstracted from the actual Recommendation. The original Recommendations were deposited in the Public Record Office (PRO), but random organisation of these voluminous files has made it difficult or indeed impossible to locate any particular record. Even a successful search can be very time-consuming. Additionally a significant number of Recommendations are missing. These long-standing difficulties are now a thing of the past. Ian Tavender has completed the mammoth task of transcribing from the PRO files all surviving Recommendations for the Second World War, together with cogent remarks by Station & Base Commanders and Air Officers Commanding, and has compiled them alphabetically by recipient in this milestone reference work. Furthermore, where no Recommendation has been found, he has often unearthed the relevant press release and has included this information within these two volumes. Of the 6463 Distinguished Flying Medals (and 56 bars) awarded to Non-Commissioned Officers and Airmen of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth, all but 164 are published with the full Recommendation or relevant press release.
