Daniel Orr Mission August 1, 1943

AUG 1         Made low altitude mission on oil fields at Ploesti, Rumania, and was very successful - as a whole. Crossed the Danube River. Went to Greece, Albania, Yugoslavia, Rumania, and Bulgaria. Most beautiful farm country that I have ever seen. Ship #28 (Bev's ship) Wongo-Wongo went down in the "Drink" before reaching Greece. Lots of fighters and ACK-ACK. Other groups lost lots of ships. Ours lost 3. We missed the target by the Col. turning too soon.
