"Flight Lieutenant Alger has completed his first operational tour against the enemy. Among the targets attacked were many heavily defended German cities including Essen, Cologne, Munich and Stuttgart. On one occasion, in order to carry out a successful attack on Stuttgart he made three orbits before releasing his bombs. In this instance and at all other times throughout his tour, he displayed courage of [a] very high order and a fine offensive spirit by pressing home the attacks."
