Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Raids 43 and 44
This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' covers Raid 43 and part of Raid 44
Raid 43 was an attack on the southern marshalling yards at Villach in southern Austria on 24 April 1945. The attack was judged to be an apple.
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.
