Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - Clippings about Major Gerard Greindl

This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' includes two cuttings about Belgian bomber pilots serving with the SAAF. Both mention Major Gerard Greindl, who had escaped to the Congo in 1940, served with the SAAF as bomber pilots and were returning to a liberated Belgium in the first cutting. Sadly the second cutting records Greindl's death as a passenger in a post-war air crash.

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.
