I was recently sent some copies of photos that once belonged to 146273 Lt John Henry Havelock Gray. GM. of 7 Bomb Disposal Company. Not having ever seen a photo of him before, I thought I share them in case anyone on here is interested. I don't know the locations, or indeed if they were all taken in Plymouth. His George Medal was awarded for an incident at Efford Road, Plymouth, Devon on the 12 August 1943.During a raid on the night of 11 Aug 43, a 500kg bomb fell on the corner of Efford Road, this was the main route between Exeter and Plymouth and had to be closed. The rest of the roads from the East into Plymouth were also closed due to bombs either being cratered or unexploded.The Efford Road bomb was found to have entered the ground tail first, it had penentrated a concrete path, of a building which had been hit and was partially demolished. The bomb was partly uncovered and one investigation it was found that it was fuzed with a 17 which was ticking. To make matters more dangerous, the partially demolished house was overhanging the bomb, right above it was a concrete slab wieghing about a hundredweight, only held by a few strands of metal reinforcement. This was so unstable that it could not be shore it up. Gas was also escaping from a nearby fractured main. As this bomb was on the surface it was and all othere routes blocked it was decided that it was to be dealt with. Lt Gray was given the task, another bomb from this stick had exploded earlier in the morning 06.00. Gray with Sgt William Bailey, spent four hours between them clearing the debris around the bomb. When cleared they were able to uncover both fuses the 50 was immunised . The 17 was still ticking when the bomb was loaded onto a truck and taken to a bomb cemetery, where it exploded shortly afterwards. Both Lt Gray and Sgt Bailey were awarded the GM for this action. Lt Gray dealt with a further nine bombs fitted with 17 and 50 fuses after this raid. Do any researchers of wartime Plymouth know the spot where the bomb landed? - Would be great to have a photo of the place as it looks today.
