Action for which recommended -

Major RICHMOND carried out the duties of Air Liaison Officer with No. 1 Air Commando throughout the period that No. 1 Air Commando acted in support of 3 Ind Div.

During the major part of this period he was working entirely on his own and got no respite whatsoever. He achieved the respect, affection and admiration of all the Americans with whom he lived and in addition carried out his duties with the greatest possible efficiency.

It is largely due to the excellent work put in by this officer that the co-operation supplied by No. 1 Air Commando was of such a very high order.
