Citation for the award of Officer of the Order of the British Empire

"WHITE, George Halford, Act Gp Capt (21184, Royal Air Force) - Directorate General of Personnel, Office of Chief of the Air Staff.

Group Captain White was appointed Head of P.6 in January 1944. In this capacity he has been responsible for advising the Air Member for Personnel on all matters affecting the pay, allowances, bonus and retired pay of officers and airmen of the Royal Air Force. The revision of the whole of these Codes for officers and airmen has, during the last nine months, placed on him a very heavy burden of additional work.  During this period his tactful relations with the corresponding Finance Branches of the Civil Service have done much to ensure the smooth cooperation of all concerned.  Group Captain White has spared no pains to discover all the relevant facts and has worked hard and conscientiously to ensure that the advice he has given has always been sound and in the interests of the Royal Air Force."
