Harbor installations at Toulon, France. Lost *3 engine on the bombing run. Couldn't keep up to formation. Jettisoned bombs. Flak started to center on just us. Went into dive. Lost 10,000' of altitude. 1 was ready to bail out. Lost the formation so headed home alone. #1 engine lost some of its power. Had to make emergency landing on Corsica. Couldn’t feather #3. Jettisoned our ammunition & other stuff. Our squadron lost one plane # 55. 512 & 514 each lost one plane. Another of our ships landed at Nettuno. Other ships also made forced landings.
