Re: The German Failure in Belgium, August 1914

The Dutch book on the opening days of the war and the German operation against Liege is great. I agree that there is hardly any English literature on this, although its briefly mentioned in the guns of August.

Distinguished flying medal

Dear all,

I recently visited some local graves of downed RAF bomber crews and I noticed that a few were awarded the DFM. To learn more about this, I was wondering if there is a publicly accessible database to search for these records?
