HAMILTON AIR SHOW 2011: The Family and the F-4U GRAY GHOST




HAMILTON AIR SHOW 2011: The Family and the F-4U GRAY GHOST





FATHER'S DAY enjoyed by the whole family…

Here a Hamiltonian family is enjoying watching Vintage Wings of Canada's F-4U dedicated to the Canadian war hero, Lt. Hampton Gray VC DSC.

If you know nary a thing about Mr. Gray, here you go…

Lt. Hampton Gray VC DSC flying a Corsair F-4U for the Royal Navy.

"On August 9, 1945 at Onagawa Bay, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, Lieutenant Gray led an attack on a Japanese destroyer. The citation for his VC, gazetted on November 13, 1945 describes what happened:

ADMIRALTY Whitehall, 13th November, 1945.

The KING has been graciously pleased to approve the award of the VICTORIA CROSS for valour to: —

the late Temporary Lieutenant Robert Hampton GRAY, R.C.N.V.R.,

for great valour in leading an attack on a Japanese destroyer in Onagawa Wan, on 9th August, 1945. In the face of fire from shore batteries and a heavy concentration of fire from some five warships Lieutenant Gray pressed home his attack, flying very low in order to ensure success, and, although he was hit and his aircraft was in flames, he obtained at least one direct hit, sinking the destroyer. Lieutenant Gray has consistently shown a brilliant fighting spirit and most inspiring leadership.

Gray was one of the last Canadians to die during World War II, and was the last Canadian to be awarded the Victoria Cross. His VC is owned by the Gray family." (Wikipedia)
