Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Union Jack newspaper 1 May 1945 (top)
This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' shows the top of the front page of the Union Jack newspaper from 1 May 1945 and was clearly saved because of the reports that the war in Italy was 'virtually complete' and on the nature of Hitler's death.
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.
