The Real No.401 Squadron Medals and Awards

Post  Wolverine on Sat Aug 24, 2013 12:47 am

The London Gazette archives online allows us to search for notices of awards granted by King George during the war. We have compiled here a list (updated with new information when found) of awards given to No.401 (No.1 RCAF) Squadron pilots during the war. Each notice is accompanied by a link to the specific London Gazette page with the award notice as published at the time.

We thank all of these servicemen, and all others unnamed, for what they did for our freedom.
