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

"WALKER, Sidney George, A/G/C (31048, Royal Air Force) - No.103 Wing.

During the last six months the RAF Disarmament Staff has been built up from a small planning staff of three officers.  In this field a considerable amount of patient planning and special study has been required to build up a programme of duties and training for Disarmament personnel to operate in Germany and the liberated countries.  By his outstanding ability, initiative and personal efforts Group Captain Walker has, in a large measure, contributed to the efficiency attained in this difficult work both within this staff and in the units mobilized. He has thus laid a solid foundation for future success."
