Victoria Cross Citation
Victoria Cross
"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."
