Lieutenant Commander Gavin Ian SIMMONITE Royal Navy

Simmonite's aircraft was so severely damaged by enemy fire that under normal circumstances it should have been landed immediately. Through his exceptional airmanship and handling skills he was able to nurse the aircraft back to a friendly location and in doing so saved both the aircraft and his crew.
