Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - 'I'm an Englishman' in Russian
This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' includes a safe conduct for Polish troops attempting to desert from the German army, a note about a visit to Rome, and a card with a message in Russian that beings with 'I'm an Englishman', for use by any aircrew who were forced down in territory occupied by the Red Army.
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.
