WW2 Distinguished Flying Medal awarded to Flight Sergeant (later Pilot Officer) Albert William John Hazell (known as 'Jack') 1179652 together with various related ephemera and photos.

AWJ Hazell (born March 1915) enlisted as an Aircraftman 2nd class on 31st of August 1940, and was promoted throughout the war. He was a known Spitfire and Beaufighter pilot, seeing action as part of 254 Sqn and 236 Sqn and as part of Coastal Command (within the attached collection are original newspaper articles and pictures showing F/Sgt Hazell's attack on a German shipping convoy off the Dutch Coast). Letters from F/Sgt Hazell dated 1943 to his parents describe some of his operations and also his pride and being awarded the DFM (in one letter he jokingly describes his DFM recommendation as probably being 'for good attendance over enemy convoys!'). Hazell was killed on active service while flight testing a Mosquito serial number MM 647 on 5th May 1944 near Alconbury. Records state that he carried out a series of very steep turns which over stressed the wooden aircraft at which point it crashed to the ground and immediately caught fire. The air officer commanding stated in his report that the pilot carried out manoeuvres that were not necessary for the relevant air test. AWJ Hazell was local to the Gloucestershire area and is buried in Gloucester Old Cemetery. His other awards were the War Medal, 1939-1945 Star and the Atlantic Star, which were distributed amongst his surviving family. Provenance - Consigned by the daughter of AWJ Hazell
