Additional information

Info

Established for officers and warrant officers of the RAF in respect of acts of valour while flying in active operations against the enemy. The Distinguished Flying Cross is issued unnamed, but Second World War crosses usually have the year of issue engraved on the reverse of the lower limb. As a result of the 1993 Review of gallantry awards and resultant changes to the operational gallantry award system, this award is now available to both officers and other ranks, the Distinguished Flying Medal having been discontinued. Since 1st January 1984 the Distinguished Flying Cross has been issued named.
