Addendum: – Distinguished Flying Cross – No.617 Squadron (deceased) – Award effective 22 August 1944 as per London Gazette of that date and AFRO 2274/44 dated 20 October 1944. Born 1922 in Pulinico, Nova Scotia; home in Fredericton or Wolfeville, Nova Scotia; enlisted in Moncton, 16 November 1940. Trained at No.1 ITS (graduated 4 May 1941), No.3 EFTS (graduated 21 June 1941) and No.5 SFTS (graduated 1 September 1941). Commissioned 1941. See DHist file 181.009d.1354 (RG.24 Vol.20597) which contains correspondence re his death. Arrived UK, 14 October 1941; to No.20 OTU, 4 November 1941; to No.214 Squadron, 29 April 1942; to No.57 Squadron, 3 May 1942. Remained with that unit to 19 September 1942, flying 33 sorties (26 to Germany, one to France, six minelaying). To No.22 OTU (non-operational tour) where he remained until 4 January 1944. To No.617 Squadron, completing his tour on 6 July 1944 (one special sortie, ten night sorties to France, four day sorties to France, one sortie to Germany, and four recalls (two Ju.88s destroyed on one of these recalls). At his own request he carried out four additional missions, two on Lancasters (17 and 20 July) and two on Mosquitos (31 July and 4 August 1944). On the morning of 7 August 1944 he was killed on Mosquito NT202 at Wainfleet during bombing exercise; wing failed as aircraft recovered from dive. Correspondence arose when his mother, Ivirs.L.L. Duffy, wrote RCAF Headquarters – We feel it was very unwise as well as unkind for the RAF to allow our son to go on with air operations after he had finished a second tour. After so much nerve strain 1 would not expect him to be at his best His receiving the DFC on July 18th as an immediate award has not been explained so it looks to us a sort of bait to encourage him to continue. In a letter to us written on July 24th he wrote that the RCAF were after him to finish. One would think he had done quite enough when he had lived through two tours and a year of instructing which he did not like. Medal presented to his father, Reverend L.L. Duffy, Wolfeville, 1 December 1944. The citation reads – “Recently this officer piloted an aircraft detailed to attack an enemy target in Northern France. The operation called for a high degree of resolution and to ensure success, accuracy was essential. In the face of considerable anti-aircraft opposition, Flying Officer Duffy made three runs over the target before releasing his bomb which exploded within a foot of the centre of the objective. He displayed great courage and devotion to duty, setting a very fine example. Flying Officer Duffy has completed a large number of sorties and has achieved much success.” Detail provided by H.
