Named Air Council Medal Slip. Original Box of Issue Named to his father Louis Adams at 33 Albert Palace Mansion in Battersea.

Desire Ernest Charles Adams served during the Second World War as a Wireless Operator / Air Gunner with 150 Squadron, flying Wellingtons. He took part in his first operational sortie on 15 November 1941, where his pilot was the New Zealander Sergeant Gordon Cochrane, who ultimately ended the War with the D. From 15 November 1941 to 20 June 1942 Adams took part in 26 sorties with Cochrane as pilot including a raid on Hamburg on 30 November 1941, when their aircraft was attacked over target area by a HE 113, attack came at the rear of the aircraft but the attacker was hit with 300 round burst from Wellington front gunner as he exited from his attack. Fuel tank holed and several geodetics were severed. The aircraft was then held in a searchlight cone for ten minutes over the target and pounded by flak. The pilot dived the aircraft right and down to 4,000 feet to shake off the attack. They also participated in attacks on the German battleships Scharnhorst, Gneisenau, and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen in Brest and during the famous Channel dash. Other sorties included Bremen, Munster, St Nazaire, Dortmund, Paris, Cologne, and four attacks on the Krupps Works at Essen.
