    "Pilot Officer Singer, a conscientious and reliable captain of aircraft has at all times displayed a cool courage and determination in the air and outstanding keeness on the ground. He has successfuly completed attacks on the enemy's most heavily defended targets, including Berlin, Hamberg, Cologne, and Essen. He also participated in the daylight attack on Milan. Throughout his operational tour this officer has consistently shown exceptional ability and devotion to duty, setting a magnificant example to less experience members of aircrew." By Such Deeds, Hanson, p. 442 AWMM
