'On 19th October, whilst escorting bombing machines, Lieutenant Maughan saw an aeroplane of another squadron go down in enemy territory. Without hesitation he at once landed, rescued the pilot and observer, and brought them back to our lines, displaying cool courage and presence of mind, deserving of high praise.'
