Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Raid 21

This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' covers Raid 21.

Raid 21 was an attack on the Monsanto Marshalling Yards at Gorizia on 4 March 1945. The attack was a moderate success (rated Orange) and a large exposion was seen. The author also spotted a dinghy containing downed airmen, who had marked their position with green dye. The entire formation circled the site and observed a Walrus land and taxi towards the dinghy.

Many thanks to Martin Hampton, the son in law of Lt. Gay, for sending us this material. These pages come from Gay's own private notebook which began with similar infomation to his flight log, but became more detailed, and also included a number of interesting items that had been pasted in.
