For exceptional service while assigned to Red FLight in RFC No.42 Squadron, Skeetr did support squad operations by the following citation:

During the FiF XVI Cambrai Campaign against forces of JG1 and Black Haze squadrons, Overall, Skeetr scored 11 kills in combat with the enemy. Notable accomplishments during this campaign include Skeetr's third mission where he killed 3 enemy planes in 14 minutes of air-to-air combat. On the first day of the final advance into German territory, Skeetr and 4 of his mates encountered 12 enemy Pfalz fighters and successfully engaged in a battle of attrition until only two aircraft remained operational on each side at the end of the day. Finally, near the end of the battle, Skeetr destroyed 4 enemy fighters in a single mission.

Without Skeetr's contributions it is likely there would have been a much higher death toll of No.42 Squadron pilots and that the overall mission might have failed. His dedication and performance of duty reflects great credit upon himself, No.42 Squadron and the British Empire. As Commanding Officer of No.42 Squadron, I take great pleasure in recognizing the deeds of Skeetr and award you the Distinguished Conduct Medal.

The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to
safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected.
