Medal presented (not clear to whom) at Buckingham Palace, 22 April 1944. The citation reads – “This airman is an observer of exceptional merit. Throughout his operational tour he has displayed both efficiency and coolness which has been of the greatest assistance to his captain. One night in June 1942, during an attack against Essen, his aircraft was damaged by anti-aircraft fire. It was also attacked by an enemy fighter. The underside of the fuselage from the front turret to the observer’s table caught fire but in spite of the imminent danger to the whole crew and the possibility that he would fall through the badly burned bottom of the fuselage, Flight Sergeant Brichta immediately attempted to extinguish the flames. His subsequent accurate navigation played a large part in the eventual safe return of his aircraft to this country. Flight Sergeant Brichta’s courage and coolness in the face of danger has at all times been of a high order. He has taken part in attacks on the enemy’s industrial targets and dockyard installations.”  Detail provided by H. Halliday, Orleans, Ontario.
