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.

London Gazette 22 September 1942. For bravery and resolution in H. While escorting an important convoy to Malta. The original recommendation states. Selected as having consistently shown keenness and efficiency and moreover behaved with outstanding courage and coolness in Harpoon whilst working under fire to maintain the serviceability of fighter aircraft. Alan Philip James Daniels was born in May 1923, and in later life was a resident of Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol. He served as a Leading Air Fitter with the Fleet Air Arm during the Second War. His service included with the Fleet Carrier H. Argus, and it was whilst serving with her during Operation Harpoon that he distinguished himself. The latter operation was a convoy designed to deliver six supply ships from the UK to Malta. They sailed from the UK, 5 June 1942, and passed through the Straits of Gibraltar on the night of 11 June. The six merchantmen, carrying 43,000 tons of cargo, were to be escorted to the Sicilian Narrows by the carriers Argus, and Eagle, the battleship Malaya, four cruisers and 17 destroyers. The convoy was well into the Mediterranean by 14 June, when heavy German and Italian air attacks were launched against them. As a consequence one merchantman and one destroyer were sunk. Further heavy air attacks continued until the convoy reached the narrows that night. The convoy proceeded to Malta with a reduced escort, and only two of the merchantmen made it through to Malta the following day. Daniels continued to serve after the war, and was commissioned Sub Lieutenant in the Royal Navy, 30 April 1949. Daniels was listed as missing presumed drowned, and is commemorated on the UN Wall of Remembrance, Pusan, Korea. THANK YOU & GOOD LUCK! We list militaria and coins weekly.

A nice original WW1 era George V Distinguished Service Order. Ranked only below the VC and George Cross for bravery, these medals seldom come on the market. You can see all the key details in the photographs – correct diagonal pin head on inside edge. There is some wear to the gilding on the medal edge exposing silver, and to the George V cypher in the centre, being normal signs of wear by the recipient. Being issued unnamed, we don’t know who the brave winner was. The box has excellent hinges and closes correctly.
