    • 'Flight Lieutenant George ALLAN (N.Z.413324), R.N.Z.A.F., attached The Lancashire Fusiliers. On 27th May, 1944, Flight Lieutenant Allan, with a small detachment, was ordered to remain in an observation post near Lamai for the purpose of directing Air Support and to report, by wireless, enemy movements and dispositions. As his party was very small he was told he might leave if his position was threatened but he remained isolated for six weeks during which he directed ten bombing attacks and gave most valuable information of enemy movements. Later, when ordered, he led his detachment forty miles through hills and jungle to join the Brigade. On 19th June, 1944, Flight Lieutenant Allan requested Air Support to deal with an enemy troop train which he had observed. As a result, our aircraft destroyed the train, probably causing heavy casualties to the passengers. On 17th April, 1944, Flight Lieutenant Allan, with a small escort, encountered a Japanese patrol in the Tonlon area and, with his escort, blocked the track and awaited the arrival of the column which was moving up behind them. This officer himself killed one of the enemy. Flight Lieutenant Allan has proved himself an outstanding officer and a source of confidence to the men.' (London Gazette, 13 February 1945, p.881.). Military Cross.
