Mission 43

May 20, 1943    Boy, what a day! Seven hours and 30 minutes in the air and 3 and a half of that on Oxygen.     Our target was Grosseto airdrome, 80 miles north of Rome. It was an easy mission, no fighters at all and very little flak. The second group went in ahead of us and gave it a good plastering then we came along and polished the  job off. Fire could be seen fifty miles away.    I checked out another pilot today -- Richardson -- and he did a jam-up job.

    Our party was a flop last night as planned. There were just 10 girls for fifty officers and five of them were French girls from Setif brought over by Stelley.
