Distinguished Flying Cross
Acting Major Kaj Birksted (1154) No. 331 (N) Squadron. Major Birksted, who has taken part in 45 sorties, had led his flight, and on occasion his squadron, with great courage and efficiency, and has destroyed 2 and damaged 1 enemy aircraft. He is held in great esteem by all pilots not only for his unselfishness and generosity but also for his cleverness in dealing with any problem relating to flying personnel. His organising ability and quickness to solve any difficulty are exceptional.
