January 2021: Sow Medals Investiture for December 2020

SQUADRON AWARDS/ CITATIONS

New in January 2021, virtual squadrons will now be recognised as a “unit” for contributions over a longer period (each half year). This recognition comes in the form of “unit citations” which all pilots within that squadron will wear on their uniforms, as long as they remain a member of that squadron. New pilots who join a squadron will also be able to share in past glorious by also wearing the unit citation on their pilot page.

The Unit Citation is a yellow ribbon, as shown below:

The award process for unit citations is as follows:

  • Each year is divided into 12 monthly campaigns.
  • In any given campaign, a squad is regarded as having made a “significant contribution” if:
    1. Two ore more pilots with their unit tags flew
    2. pilots with unit tags collectively logged 10+ flight hours
  • Unit citations are awarded every half-year (Jan-Jun and Jul-Dec)
  • If a squad makes 5+ significant contributions in the given half-year, it gets a unit citation
  • A unit citation is displayed as an extra ribbon on member pilots’ records
  • The unit citation belongs to the squad, not the pilots. Thus:
    1. new pilots joining that squad, will receive its past citation ribbon
    2. pilots leaving the squad will lose the unit citation ribbon

These Squadrons/ Groups have been given Unit Citations for the period June to December 2020:

  1. Jagdgeschwader 53
  2. No.303 Squadron
  3. No.54 Squadron
  4. 362nd FS
  5. European Air Force (EAF)
  6. 78th Fighter Group
  7. FF
