Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Raid 28 and Special Order of the Day

This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' covers Raid 28 and Field Marshal Alexander's Order of the Day for April 1945 with the final Allied offensive in Italy about to begin.

Raid 28 was an attack on the Monsanto Marshalling Yards at Gorizia on 4 April 1945, and this report largely covers the return trip.

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.
