The following is the citation for Charles Roderick Carr's DFC, awarded in 1919.
 
"On June 17, 1919, this officer flew a scout machine over the enemy aerodrome at Puchega, at an average height of only 50 ft. for 30minutes. During this time he succeeded in setting fire to a Nieuport enemy machine, to a hangar which contained three aeroplanes (all of which were destroyed), drove all the personnel off the aerodrome, and killed some of the mechanics."
 
I'm unable to locate 'Puchega' on a map or via the internet and wonder if a forumite might know what its correct or present name is, or where it might have been in relation to his squadron's base at Bereznik.
 
Thanks in a advance for any assistance offered.
