Mission 33

April 11, 1942

    We were briefed for a raid on docks and shipping at Sicily but it was cancelled and at 11 o'clock we were briefed again during a red alert to bomb an ocean liner in the Tunis harbor.    Our squadron led the group with Col. Quick in the lead ship. I flew #12 with Hart as my co-pilot.    The mission was short (three hours) and the target was well hit and believed to be sunk.    Tunis has lost its power because very little flak was thrown up and not a single fighter was seen except a high cover of spitfires.

    Everyone returned safely. As usual the Red Cross served us hot coffee and doughnuts when we landed.
