Gray Ghost Delivers

From The Dispatch on this day in 1945:

BACK FROM ENGLAND--Master Sergeant Roy C. Hege, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. Webb Hege, of West Fifth Avenue, arrived home after 22 months in England when the Queen Mary made her first redeployment crossing and reached home last Sunday, June 24. He had been stationed in England with the Eighth Air Force, and he will report back to a base in South Dakota after spending a 30-day leave here. Sgt. Hege is a graduate of Wake Forest college and was employed by the State Board of Alcoholic control before entering service in January 1942. While in England a bomber crashed through the building where he worked and he suffered a broken foot.
