    000. F Lt William Gorley DFC RAFVR (Died 27 March 1946).JPG
    F/Lt W. Gorley, DFC, RAFVR (originally from Flimby, Maryport, Cumbria)
    Casualty Details | CWGC
    Checking an enquiry about a West Cumbrian airman I notice from his CWGC record (attached) he was awarded the DFC. Any chance that someone can find the citation for this please?
    I would normally have visited one of the local libraries to look up old newspaper archives but at the time of posting this libraries are still closed because of the 2020 pandemic.
    I can see he married in Surrey in 1942. His widow is listed on the CWGC record at Mitcham, Surrey.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist.

    Thanks for this information.

    Unusual that there were two WOs on the aircraft with the name Frank Robinson, the same age (22), but evidently two different airmen with different service numbers.
