Log book for Lt D.W. Gay - 24-26 September 1944

This page from Lt. D.W. Gay's Log Book covers his flying experiences from 24-26 September and the summary for September 1944

Operation 5 was an attack on the rail marshalling yards at Forli, and introduces a new fruit code - we met Apple and Lemon on the previous page, now we find 'Orange'.

Operation 6 was an attack on San Angelo, and was a 'Lemon'.

The summary shows that Gay flew on six sorties during his first month with the squadron, which involved 13 hours 15 minutes of flying time.

Many thanks to Martin Hampton, the son in law of Lt. Gay, for sending us this material.
