Temp. Lt. J. C. B. Firth, Shrops. L.I., transferred to Gen. List on 17 April 1917.
Military Cross (MC)
T./Lt. (T./Capt.) John Charles Bradley Firth, Gen. List and R.F.C.
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He has on various occasions, during a period of two months, completely destroyed two enemy planes and shot down out of control seven others. The latter, by reason of the manner in which they were observed to go to earth, were probably all rendered useless for further service. He has set a very fine example as a patrol leader, and has displayed much skill and courage.
