SUBMIT A NAME TO BE INCLUDED IN THE ROLL OF HONOUR REGISTERS
These pages provide information about the Gallantry Awards and Medals awarded to members of the Fleet Air Arm, for gallantry and during campaigns or military service in time of war.
This site is dedicated to the memory of all those who received honours and awards in the Fleet Air Arm. The page is especially dedicated to the families of Esmonde and Gray
In July 1999, the Fleet Air Archive began to list the names of as many Fleet Air Arm personnel who had received honours and awards. In August, 2000 the list has been completed as best as could be with available resources, for the Commanding Officers, and TAGs. Future phases will concentrate on the other aircrew and their awards. It certain that there are a few awards may have been over looked, but not intentionally. The task was long and difficult not to mention extremely time consuming.
The FAA Archive would like to complete the Medal Roster list by adding the other Commonwealth naval aviator names to the Honour rolls. If you know any missing names please contact the FAA Archive. Meanwhile we will be undertaking further research and consultation with veteran and veteran associations to ensure that this list will become as complete as possible so as to ensure that the dedication, bravery and effort of these men is never forgotten.
