Howard Conlee, Mission Nov. 26, 1942
Mission #8 Time 14:25 Another raid on Tripoli. We landed at the advanced base and stayed aver night and refueled. We sighted the target but as we reached altitude #4 engine cut out and we were forced to turn back. A pursuit passed behind us but failed to attack. We saw a sub but were unable to identify it. On the way home #1 engine cut out and we were forced down at LG 137 (25 miles from Cairo). We stayed all night here and a B-17 came out the next morning and took us back home.
