One of your searches in progress is for "Henly Neilson Scott ". You probably already have this, but the Air Force Association of Canada at http://www.airforce.ca/ has the following info under the Air Force Honours & Awards page:

    SCOTT, F/L Henley Neilson (J20948)
    Distinguished Flying Cross - No.61 Squadron
    Award effective 10 May 1944 as per London Gazette dated 2 June 1944 and AFRO 1296/44 dated 16 June 1944. Born in Regina, 24 August 1920; home in Winnipeg; enlisted there 1 November 1941. Trained at No.7 ITS (graduated 22 May 1942), No.19 EFTS (graduated 31 July 1942) and No.10 SFTS (graduated 20 November 1942). Commissioned 1942. Award presented 30 October 1948. Served in postwar RCAF Auxiliary with No.402 Squadron; appointed Honourary Colonel of that unit in 1985.
    Flight Lieutenant Scott has completed many sorties against important German targets including seven attacks on Berlin. In September 1943, during a mine-laying operation, one engine of his aircraft failed soon after he set course, but this officer flew on and successfully completed his mission. An outstanding captain of aircraft, Flight Lieutenant Scott has set a high standard of airmanship and by his determination to press home his attacks has inspired his crew with the same fine fighting spirit.
