Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort -

This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' covers part of Raid 44 and includes part of the Union Jack newspaper from 1 May 1945.

Raid 44 was an attack on enemy troop and motor transport concentrations south of the Po on 24 April 1945, a rare example of two raids on the same day. The raid was judged to be a second apple of the day.

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.
