'During the months of June and July these Officrs (Captain Smith and Lieutenant Kirk) accounted for two enemy machines, and they have been conspicuous for gallantry and initiative in attacking ground targets, frequently at very low altitudes. The keeness and fine example set by these officers cannot be over-estimated.'
