    I think the Japanese Kaga class ship mentioned being torpedoed was probably the Soryu, but it was not hit by Ens G.H. Gay.

    Ens Gay is well known for being the only surviving air crew member of Torpedo Squadron 8, flying Devastators, at Midway. Gay was one only 4 aircraft to get close enough to the carrier to launch his torpedo but he missed widely and was shot down in doing so.

    Ens Gay floated under a seat cushion and watched VB-3, VS-6, and VB-3 land bombs on carriers Kaga, Akagi, and Soryu, resulting in their loss.

    Perilous times for Allies depicted in most of later clippings. The Battle of Midway did not seem to make as great of impression as it since has.

    I did not realize how much sugar went into making explosives. Significant.

    Interesting report on the bombing of Cologne and also the BBC waring to the French people to evacuate a large area along the coast. Ensign Gay is also mentioned again By Admiral Nimitz as the pilot who was responsible for sinking of a Japanese carrier. 79422.JPG
