JUL 19 Left at 0650 to go on raid to Rome and bomb marshalling yards.
Pamplets were dropped last night inviting the Italian public to see our accurate bombing and where it would be. After crossing Sicily our #2 engine went out. #8 Cyl. head blew and rocker box broke. So we had to return. Ran into 3 E/A. No trouble. Baksheese Mission.
