"Flying Officer Ardeline has served with this squadron since January 1944. Prior to this he took part in attacks on the Arakan and Imphal fronts and in the night defence of the Calcutta area. During the whole on his tour he has displayed outstanding keenness and determination to engage the enemy. Recently he pursued a formation of hostile aircraft far into Burma, damaging one and probably destroying another. The example set by Flying Officer Ardeline has been an inspiration to his fellow pilots."
