Richard G. Miller Mission July 28, 1942

July 28

Went on a search for a convoy, but couldn't locate them so bombed Suda Bay on the Island of Crete again. Had a 12 plane formation in staggered down javelin formation - worked out nicely.

Had a sub sniffer with us and it was to locate the ship and we were to destroy it; but according to true form, operations tied up the detail and at 17,000 ft. there was too big a blind spot for the locating degree is only 18 deg. above and below horizon. Ak-Ak wasn't too heavy but nearly knocked one down; no fighter interception. Flight took over 10 hours; we were over Greece part of the time"
