Oliver 'Sandy' Kallio (Part I) No. 33 Squadron

Acting Flight Lieutenant Oliver Charles Kallio R.C.A.F. (U.S.) - Distinguished Flying Cross Citation: “In October, 1942, this officer led a formation against a force of enemy dive bombers protected by a strong escort of fighters. The attack was so skilfully executed that the enemy bombers were compelled to jettison their bombs on their own lines. A few days later, in a similar sortie, a superior formation of enemy bombers was forced to release its bombs prematurely. Throughout the engagement, Flight Lieutenant Kallio, who destroyed a Junkers 87, displayed fine leadership. He has at all times set an inspiring example.”
