Howard Conlee, Mission Jul 19, 1943

Mission #30 (only got 1/2 time 5:30) There have been no operations for quite a few days. The last raid was on Rome. We started out in one of the oldest ships on the field and started having engine trouble right away. We managed to get to within I hour of the target and were forced to turn back. We headed for Tunis going directly between Sicily and Sardinia. We had #2 engine feathered and #1 was acting up. It took a lot of sweating and work to get the ship to cripple home.  We threw our ammunition overboard to lessen our load. I had trouble getting the landing gear down and the nose wheel collapsed on landing and we scooted to a stop our nose.
