Howard Conlee, Mission Jan. 11, 1943

Mission #14 Time 3:30   (January 11, 1943)

This was to be my first raid with Capt. Oglesby. We blew out a tire while preparing to take off and were unable to go on the mission. This mission had very bad luck - we lost two out of the eight ships that went over the target. Their guns froze up and a Folke Wulfe 190 shot them down in flames. It is thought that one man out of the seventeen aboard escaped. Among them were Lt. Col Payne (I flew with him awhile), Sgt. Gotham ~ (he came over with our gang).
