Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Raid 26

This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' covers Raid 26, where his formation attacked marshalling yards at Coneglia.

The raid took place on 31 March 1945, and was originally intended to hit an ammo dump, but cloud hit that target, so the formation hit their second target instead.

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.
