1939 ROYAL AIR FORCE M.I.D PAPERWORK LOT VERY EARLY D.F.M ACTION

A fascinating and historical group of documents with a very early D.F.M connection for 1939 with a connection to the British actress Minnie Driver.

The four page document dated 1944 is regarding an emergency commision for 531023 SGT Dennis Conolly who as an Air gunner with the rank of Airman was awarded the M.I.D in the Same action the front gunner, Aircraft man Charles Driver won one of the first D.C.M`s of W.W. 2 .


On December 18 1939 22 Wellington Bombers planes from 9, 37 &149 squadrons were tasked with the destruction of German shipping believed to be anchored out side the port of Wilhelmshafen. On arrival the British force of planes released the shipping was anchored actually INSIDE the harbour and as was the code of conduct amongst the RAF in the early war the mission was aborted to prevent civilian casualties (I never new this )


Citation reads:

"Aircraftman Driver was the front gunner in an aircraft engaged in operations over an enemy naval base in December, 1939. Although the aircraft was subjected to very heavy fire he remained at his post until both the front guns were put out of action and the flooring shot away or in flames, which he extinguished with his hands. As by this time the petrol system had been severely damaged, he proceeded to the hand petrol pump, and continued manual pumping until shortage of petrol caused the aircraft to land in the sea.
Despite these exertions, Aircraftman Driver subsequently succeeded in launching the dinghy and assisted in saving the remainder of the crew, some of whom were wounded.
It is undoubtedly largely due to his alertness that the members of the crew of this aircraft were brought to safety."

Charles Driver spent many months in various psychiatric units and suffered with P.T.S.D for most of his life there after.

Condition :GOOD with age and marks.


There is an episode of Who Do You Think You Are featuring the actress Minnie Driver the daughter of Charles Driver telling the as then unknown story of her dead father war time service , extremely sad in parts but
recommended viewing.
