St. James's Palace., S.W.1, 18th September, 1945.

The KING has been graciously pleased to give orders for the following appointments to the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire and to approve the following awards of the George Medal and the British Empire Medal (Military Division):-

To be an Additional Member of the Military Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire:- Flying Officer Ivan Oliver Hulley (160195) Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve.

Awarded the British Empire Medal (Military Division) 1110151 Leading Aircraftsman Richard Tyldesley Miller, Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve.

On the 25th March 1945, an aircraft crashed into the crew room of a dispersal hut whilst making an attempted forced landing on the airfield at Aston Down. The petrol tank exploded within the hut, where a number of ground personnel were changing. Flying Officer Hulley, who was standing nearby, attempted to extricate the pilot from the burning aircraft. Undeterred by the flames and the intense smoke fumes from the petrol tank, he continued his efforts until he fainted from the effect of the fumes and had to be pulled away. He acted with extreme promptitude and gallantry and with complete disregard for his own safety, thus setting an excellent example to all who saw him. Leading Aircraftsman Miller dashed through flames into the dispersal hut and rescued an airman who was slightly burned and completely dazed. He then rendered assistance in dragging away from the flames, caring for and placing on a stretcher, an airman who was badly burned. He displayed great personal courage without thought for his own safety and his prompt action undoubtedly saved one life.
