Distinguished Flying Cross. L/G. 29th May 1942:
"This officer has completed over 100 operational sorties of which 72 have been over enemy territory. He has destroyed 2 enemy aircraft, probably destroyed 1, and damaged a further 2. On one occasion, whilst over France, the port tailplane and starboard elevator of his aircraft were shot away, but he succeeded in flying back to base safely. In a recent engagement his aircraft was so severely damaged that he was compelled to abandon it! He was, however, flying on operations again the following day. Squadron Leader Douglas has led his squadron with skill and determination".
