Distinguished Flying Cross
Acting Flight Lieutenant Desmond Palmer PERRIN (N.Z.404404), Royal New Zealand Air Force, No 1 Squadron.
This officier has participated in very many sorties and has led his flight with distinction on all occasions. In the course of his activities, Flight Lieutenant Perrin has executed destructive attacks on locomotives, rail installations and enemy shipping. On one occasion he obtained a hit on an ammunition truck which blew up with such violence that his aircraft was endangered by the explosion. In addition, Flight Lieutenant Perrin has destroyed a Messerschmitt 210. His fine fighting qualites have been highly commendable.
