James Collison mission July 11, 1943

JULY

Sunday 11

Today we were scheduled to go on the mission which was going to Reggio airdome - we got off o.k. and lost an engine on the climb so had to return. We had a nice time sweating engines-all of them were running low on oil. No combat time again today. Went to the movie tonight. The name of it was 'Alighany Uprising". No mail today-didn't exactly expect any-but I do wish there had been a letter or two. Went into town to see about my watch, picked up my laundry and took a shower. I pray that Penny is well and happy. I worry about her constantly. God Bless her and keep her safe. xxx
