Mission 46

May 26, 1943

    Boy, this was a tough one and long. Our target was the docks at Messina -- located on the East coast of Sicily right off the toe of Italy. Our group led the other today and Thomas and I led our squadron. We didn't have much trouble except for a hell of a lot of flak, only one fighter was seen. We got five holes but none of them were vital. The 97th lost two ships, 99th two, and the 2nd one. It is reported that ten of our "P" shooters were shot down. You can bet that the target was torn to bits, though.
