"This Sergeant Pilot has shown conspicuous gallantry as a glider pilot. He was released at 500 feet over the sea and glided six miles. During this time, he was under fire from anti-aircraft and searchlights. He landed in a field selected by Commanding Officer. He then took part in the capture of a bridge which led to the capture of Syracuse. It was due to his brilliant landing that the blowing of the bridge was saved and the operation was successful."
