Flight Lieutenant Guy Godfrey Charles "Nip" Gunzi was an English officer of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

He was born in 1921, in Richmond, the son of Italian import merchant Carlo Teresa (later Charles Terrence) and Ella Maria Gunzi (née Devlin).

Gunzi, serving as a pilot in 619 Squadron, died on 27 April 1944, when his Avro Lancaster (serial LL919) crashed at Landeville while engaged on an operation against Schweinfurt, Germany. One of the seven crew, Flight Sergeant J.W. Mills, survived and was taken prisoner.[1]

He and his crew are buried in Landeville Churchyard, Haute-Marne.
