If it helps any, 14th July 1945 was a Saturday.
Well, Gadget was finished on 14 July 1945. Gadget was hoisted to the top of
the 100 foot test tower, and the detonators were installed and connected.
Final test preparations began. Two days later, on 16 July 1945, Gadget was
detonated in the first atomic explosion in history.
However, somehow I can't see that Gadget would be your "G".
Now, if it had said "B" Day then that may have meant Bastille Day, but it
didn't say that. The celebrations in France on Bastille Day in 1945 were
particularly notable (as had been previously in 1919).
Apparently, this was also the day that Italy declared war on Japan - only
just made it there - another few weeks and it was all over anyway!!!
I don't suppose that this was in anticipation of one day living in Australia
and was therefore not "G Day" but instead "G'Day"???
