Log book for Lt D.W. Gay - 6-20 April 1944

This page from Lt. Gay's Log Book covers his flying experiences from 6-20 April 1944. Once again we have a mix of day and night flights, bombing and navigation training and Arvo Ansons and Airspeed Oxfords. We also have the first example of several flights on the same day - 20 April saw two daytime trips in the Anson (although the first was cut short by problems with the wireless) and one night flight, a total of almost seven hours of flight.

Many thanks to Martin Hampton, the son in law of Lt. Gay, for sending us this material.
