Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Raid 29

This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' covers Raid 29, an attack to support the Eighth Army.

Raid 29 took place on 9 April 1945 and aimed at enemy occupied buildings four miles ahead of the advancing Eighth Army. The attack was an Apple, with 90% of the bombs hitting the target area.

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.
