Lt D.W. Gay's War Effort - The Compass Swing
This page from Lt D.W. Gay's 'War Effort' shows how the compas swing worked - providing examples of actual courses and compass readings for south, west, north and east.
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.
