Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - 'What Happens at Home'
This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' includes a picture of the bombing on 6 March 1945, and an extract from a South African newspaper, which starts with the title 'What Happens at Home'. The first story is about the rapid fundraising for war memorials, with around £1,000,000 already raised.
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.
