Luton Airman Receives Military Cross and Bar

Paul Ward Spencer Bulman

Sunday 14th April 1918: Rev. Thomas Bulman, the Vicar of St. Paul’s Luton, has received the following letter from the commanding officer of his son, Paul Ward Spencer Bulman:

“It is with the greatest possible pleasure I write to inform you that yesterday the great news came through that your son Paul has been awarded a bar to his Military Cross. He has more than earned it by splendid work, especially during the recent operations. My heartiest congratulations to you and yours.”

This means that within the last six months Captain Bulman has been mentioned in dispatches, awarded the Military Cross, promoted to Captain, and has now been awarded a bar to add to the Military Cross. Captain Bulman is serving in France with the Royal Air Force as Flight Commander of a squadron.
