My pleasure Morag - I just love the puzzles!

Such as how this man got a DFC twice so early in the war.
LGaz 28/5/1940
Flying Officer Stanley Dudley Pierce CONNORS (40349)This officer showed outstanding fighting ability and gallantry when, during two consecutive days in May, 1940, whilst greatly outnumbered, he shot down three Heinkel ill's, two Junkers 88J s and one Messerschmitt 109.

LGaz 6/9/1940
Acting Flight Lieutenant Stanley Dudley Pearce CONNORS, D.F.C. (40349), since killed in action. This officer has led his flight in all its operations against the enemy with great skill and courage. In a week of almost continuous action he shot down at least four enemy aircraft bringing his total successes to twelve.

What a story!

What an amazing story and worth reading. We owe so much to him and the many countless others who never came home.
