Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Raids 38 and 39

This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' covers Raids 38 and 39.

Raid 38 was an attack on troop concentrations at Bonate to support the 8th Army. The attack was an 'apple', despite a problem with the formation leader's bombsight.

Raid 39 was an attack on the motor transport and mobile reserves of the 29th Panzer Division at Pradazzo to support the 8th Army. The attack was an 'apple' with most 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.
