Donald Macrae mission September 12, 1943

September 12, 1943  Today's briefing 7:00am and I flew as Campbell's co-pilot. We bombed an airfield on the island of Rhodes to deny it to the Germans. The Italian fleet has now surrendered at Malta and the peace terms are more public. I still don't feel too well. Flew half of the time. Got nearly 8 hours. The air was bumpy and there were clouds on the way out but cleared up at the target and at altitude. Back at 5:00 pm. Had supper. Read from a new Time Magazine Jane had mailed me. Wrote in the diary and to bed 10:00 pm.
