Roll of Honour

REILLY, Corporal Terence Desmond (RAF 550357) - Air Force Medal - No. 31 Air Navigation School, Port Albert, Ontario - Awarded as per London Gazette dated 1 January 1943 and AFRO 55/43 dated 15 January 1943. Born in London (birthplace provided by RAF Personnel Management Agency, letter dated 2 February 1999 to H.A. Halliday).
Corporal Reilly has served in this unit as a Wireless Operator Air Crew since January 1937. His work has involved not only long hours on navigational flights by day and night, but on operational anti-submarine patrols as well, the latter work being done before his unit came to Canada. At all times Corporal Reilly has shown great initiative and keenness, and has done excellent work in training young and inexperienced wireless operators air crew sent to this unit. Largely owing to his work and initiative the success of W/T communication on long range navigational flights within this unit has reached a high standard of efficiency. In the course of these duties Corporal Reilly has flown 1,860 hours. His loyalty, unselfishness, and devotion to duty under all conditions of service are outstandingly high.
