Flying Officer William Frederick KEELER (176234), R.A.F.V.R, 156 Sqn.
Flying Officer Keller has taken part in very many sorties, involving attacks on a, variety of enemy targets. He is a fine pilot and captain whose zest for air operations has set an excellent example.
One night in February, 1945, Flying Officer Keeler took part in an attack on a target at Pforzheim. Although the port outer engine failed on the outward flight, this pilot went on to execute a good attack. Some days later, en route to Mannheim, an engine failed. Displaying his usual determination, Flying Officer Keeler flew on to the target which he reached on time. During the bombing run his aircraft sustained some damage but he pressed home his attack and afterwards flew safely to base.
This officer has invariably displayed praiseworthy skill and gallantry.
