Reg Reynolds DSO* DFC*

Reg Reynolds was one of the most decorated RAF pilots during World War Two earning two DSOs and two DFCs, one of only 30 airmen to do so. He led many low-level daylight attacks in Mosquitos including the longest to the Zeiss Optical Works at Jena and the attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Aarhus in Denmark. His most spectacular success was to lead four Mosquitos on the first daylight raid on Berlin when, with brilliant timing, a key address by Goring to the German nation at a mass rally was interrupted.
