Citations:
LG Sup 23 February 1943 pg. 930 - "This officer has taken part in numerous reconnaissance missions, displaying great skill and tenacity. On one occasion in November, 1942, he was the pilot of 1 of 2 aircraft which were intercepted by a number of enemy aircraft over the El Agheila area. During the ensuing fight his Comrade was shot down but Lieutenant Lloyd, although his own aircraft was damaged, continuously engaged the enemy fighters. Thus his comrade was enabled to land his crippled aircraft safely and later to rejoin his squadron. Throughout, Lieutenant Lloyd displayed great courage and determination"
