It’s with great pleasure that I add the logbook of Gerry Newey to the logbook section. I would like to thank his family for their permission to do so and in particular to Chris Newy, Gerald’s nephew, who I met early in my research journey and who has been a constant source of encouragement in this project. Gerry flew with Doug Williamson and it was Chis, first discovering that Doug lived nearby, that resulted in me meeting up with Doug and his wife Janet in September at East Kirkby. Like me, Chris has been bitten by the 75(NZ) research bug and a more detailed story of Gerald’s wartime career will follow soon.

As always Chris,
