As George H. Gay's daughter I could think of no better way to honor there memory other than to put this very special memorial movie on this web site for all to see.
It is called Torpedo Squadron 8 In Color By John Ford, this movie was made in 1942 as directed by the US Navy shortly after the loss of the entire Torpedo 8 Squadron during the battle of Midway. To the best of my knowledge no other Squadron has ever been honored in this way.
For over 50 years only the families of the 29 men that were lost and my father retained copies of this movie because only 30 were ever made. So please sit back and meet the Hero's of Torpedo Squadron 8.
