Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC)
Lt. (temp. Capt.) Thomas Percy Middleton.
   During the past two months this officer has been very successful as a fighting pilot, destroying six enemy machines in that time— two of them being triplanes.
   On one of these occasions the formation to which Capt. Middleton belonged (consisting of nine machines) attacked fifteen enemy aeroplanes, and this officer shot one of them down.
