    • This officer and airman were pilot and flight engineer respectively, of an aircraft which attacked Kassel one night in October, 1943. Soon after leaving the target area, the bomber was hit by a burst of gunfire from a fighter. Flying Officer Hoboken, Sergeant Lucas and other members of the crew were wounded and the aircraft sustained damage. A few minutes later, a second attack developed. The bomber was hit again and both turrets rendedered unserviceable. Nevertheless Flying Officer Hoboken manoeuvred his aircraft with consummate skill and succeeded in flying clear. The situation was serious, however, as the bomber was badly crippled and 5 of the crew were wounded. In spite of this, course was set for this country. Displaying superb skill, Flying Officer Hoboken battled on to reach an airfield. During the return flight, Sergeant Lucas, although wounded, fulfilled his engineering tasks with great ability, rendering valuable assistance. In circumstances fraught with great danger this officer and airman displayed courage, resolution and devotion to duty of the highest order.
