JASPER Clarence Murl (F/L) RCAF J10611

Distinguished Flying Cross en septembre 1944

This officer is a most skilful and resolute pilot whose determination to engage the enemy has always been evident. He has completed many sorties and has destroyed three enemy aircraft in the air and others on the ground.

NOTE : Public Record Office Air 2/9158 has recommendation raised 23 May 1944 which is much more detailed. He had flown 23 sorties (86 operational hours):

This officer has completed 23 operational sorties over enemy and enemy occupied territory; of these 19 have been Intruder and Bomber Support sorties and four Day Rangers.

Flying Officer Jasper has shown a marked determination to engage the enemy and has patrolled many of the most heavily defended enemy airfields. His unfailing keenness has rewarded him with the destruction of six enemy aircraft destroyed and the damaging of another.

On the night of April 12th, Flying Officer Jasper planned an Intruder sortie into Western Czechoslovakia. While en route to his target, he encountered and shot down a FW.190.

Much of the success enjoyed by this squadron on recent daylight sorties has been due to the support and personal participation of this pilot. On March 12th, Flying Officer Jasper damaged a Ju.52 at Clermont. On April 16th this officer planned and led a very successful daylight sortie to Luxueil where he destroyed a Caudron Goeland in the air and two more on the ground. Again on May 14th, Flying Officer Jasper planned and led a sortie in daylight to Haguenau. At Atzlot he destroyed a Ju.87 on the ground and at Nancy he shot down and destroyed a He.111.

Flying Officer Jasper has shown fine fighting qualities and has played an important part in the operations of this squadron. His usefulness to an operational squadron cannot be rated too highly and his personal example is most commendable.
