Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Doomed Marauder of 24 Squadron, SAAF
This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' shows the doomed Marauder of Lt Oakes of No.24 Squadron SAAF after it had been hit and lost a wing during a mission on 21 April 1945. There were no survivors from this aircraft, which was the last SAAF Marauder lost during the war.
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.
