Default Lee and Blair...DFCs....1940.

Flight-Lieutenant R H A Lee, after being awarded the DSO and DFC, and Flying Officer K H Blair, after being awarded the DFC, by King George VI at RAF Hornchurch, Essex. The awards were given for their distinguished service as fighter pilots with No. 85 Squadron RAF in France. Lee, a flight commander with the Squadron, was posted missing in action on 18 August 1940, having destroyed at least 9 enemy aircraft. Blair flew with No. 151 Squadron RAF during the Battle of Britain, and later converted to night fighters. He finished the war commanding No. 613 Squadron RAF, having brought his victory score to 12.

Thanks IWM

Dickie Lee did not survive the war, and has no known grave:
