Offered is a Distinguished Flying Medal group of 6 medals to Flight Sergeant A. Brown, who flew as a Navigator in Mosquitoes as part of the 128th Squadron (Pathfinder Force) R. The swing mounted group consists of: Distinguished Flying Medal G. 1939-45 Star; Atlantic Star with imitation clasp AIR CREW EUROPE; Africa Star; Defence Medal; War Medal 1939-45 with Mentioned In Despatches oak leaf. The medals are swing mounted. All medals excluding the D. Are unnamed – as issued. Comes with Air Ministry envelope containing unused period form. Copy of the D. Recommendation and & details of sorties-targets and dates. Copies London Gazette 1945. Andrew Brown, who presumably was active earlier in the Coastal Command, began his operational career with the 128th Squadron in September 1944, the same month that the squadron was reformed at Wyton as a Mosquito light bomber unit (8th Path Finder Force Group), as part of the P. Fast Night Strike Force. In this capacity, Brown went on to complete his 40 operational sorties against German targets. This included 18 sorties to Berlin. A scarce WWII D. Accompanied by copy of his recommendation for the D. 128 Squadron reformed at Wyton on 5 September 1944 as a Mosquito squadron in No. 8 Group, and was part of the Light Night Striking Force. The squadron flew night intruder missions over Germany for the rest of the war. Locations: September 1944-June 1945: Wyton. October 1945-March 1946: B. The Light Night Striking Force (LNSF) was an outgrowth of the Pathfinder Force use of the fast and long-ranged Mosquito bomber, which could carry a sizeable bomb load. Under 8 Group, the number of Mosquito squadrons was built up. These were used for harassing raids on Germany. To the two (Oboe-equipped) Mosquito squadrons already in Pathfinder Force, a third No. 139 was added in June 1943, which Bennett intended to use for diversionary raids to draw the German nightfighters away from the main force. In February 1944 an entirely Mosquito raid was mounted against Düsseldorf. It was formed of the usual marker aircraft from 105 Squadron and 692 Squadron Mosquitos, each carrying a single 4,000 lb “cookie”, and backup aircraft with 500 lb delayed action bombs. With Harris’ support, Bennett formed more Mosquito squadrons to expand the LNSF, giving him nine bomber squadrons, as well as the Oboe-equipped markers and 8 Group’s own meteorological Mosquitoes. The LNSF achieved 27,239 sorties, their best month being March 1945 with nearly 3,000 sorties. This was achieved with the loss of just under 200 aircraft on operations or “damaged beyond repair”. Flight Sergeant Brown flew 40 operation sorties in Mosquitoes from September 1944-10. Targets were : Karlsruhe, Hamburg, Osnabruck, Hannover x 5, Munster, Berlin x 18, Mannheim x 2, Sterkrade, Stuttgart, Magdeburg x 3, Erfurt x 2, Nuremburg, Kassel x 2 & Essen.

The MAKE OFFER function is available on the watch, please use it. This is a stunning Black Coloured Porcelain Dial WW1 Trench watch but it is historically important due to the fantastic engraving that the watch carries… A true historical artefact. This is a very special watch indeed and was awarded to a very special guy… This watch was presented to Private HW Barker, York and Lancaster Regiment, who was awarded the DCM for repairing telephone lines under fire at the battle of Asiago. For conspicuous gallantry under intense enemy barrage while working continuously on a main telephone line which had been cut to pieces. The two men assisting him were killed one after the other, but Private Barker stuck to his job and put the line through alone. Upon his return he immediately volunteered to go out through a barrage and mend another line, though he had nothing to eat for 15 hours. His absolute disregard of danger and his devotion to duty were magnificent. The hands are awesome which with the numerals carry some of the original luminous paint. The dial is beautifully black and in great shape. The crown is the original Pumpkin crown. The movement which is running well and keeping time is unsigned, however is a Fontainmelon movement. Is it wearable, oh YES this is a watch made for wearing and will catch the eye of many as your arm rests on the bar of your local pub.
