Awarded D.F.C. 4 July 1941: "In June 1941 this officer led a formation of aircraft which carried out an attack on an enemy merchant ship. In spite of intense anti-aircraft fire from this and other escorting vessels, Squadron Leader Spencer pressed home his attack from a low altitude and the formation succeeded in destroying the merchant vessel. After delivering the attack his aircraft received direct hits causing damage to the starboard engine and inner port petrol tanks, while Squadron Leader Spencer was hit in the leg sustaining a fracture in two places and his observer was wounded in the back. Despite his injury, S/L Spencer succeeded in flying his aircraft back to this country although the starboard engine and instrument panel were out of action. On a previous occasion S/L Spencer successfully bombed an enemy tanker off the Norwegian coast in the face of intense anti-aircraft fire, and although his port engine was disabled, he succeeded in flying his aircraft safely back to this country. He has shown great determination, courage and efficiency."
