Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Raid 32

This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' covers Raid 32.

Raid 32 was an attack on marshalling yards at Gemona on 11 April 1945 and was a 'lemon', after the wind was over-estimated thus making the settings in the bomb site inaccurate. As a result the bombs overshot their target.

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.
