Douglas Lawley Stevens WOOD
This officer has completed much operational flying.
He has at all times displayed the greatest keenness and throughout has shown skill and resolution of a 'high standard.
In March, 1945, Flight Lieutenant Wood led a small formation of aircraft in an attack against a house being used as
a strong point by the enemy. The target was very close to the forward position occupied by our ground forces.
Despite this, Flight Lieutenant Wood pressed home his attack with great accuracy, resulting in the complete destruction
of the target from which the enemy retreated. The courage and determination shown by Flight Lieutenant Wood on this
well-executed sortie was typical of that which he has displayed on all occasions.
