Distinguished Service Cross (DSC)
Flt. Lieut. John Gamon, R.N.A.S.
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. On the 30th March, 1918, whilst returning from a bombing raid, he was attacked by three enemy triplanes, one of which he brought down and drove off the other two. He has carried out very many bombing raids on enemy lines of communication, aerodromes, and dumps. His work has always been of the greatest merit, and he has set a splendid example to those around him.
