Roger Arendsee notes on the mission of August 6, 1944.

Harbor installations at Toulon, France. Lost *3 engine on the bombing run. Couldn't keep up to formation. Jettisoned bombs. Flak started to center on just us. Went into dive. Lost 10,000' of altitude. 1 was ready to bail out. Lost the formation so headed home alone. #1 engine lost some of its power. Had to make emergency landing on Corsica. Couldn’t feather #3. Jettisoned our ammunition & other stuff. Our squadron lost one plane # 55. 512 & 514 each lost one plane. Another of our ships landed at Nettuno. Other ships also made forced landings.


The website is NOT our site nor is it our endowment fund.

At the 2017 reunion, the board approved the donation of our archives to the Briscoe Center for American History, located on the University of Texas - Austin campus.

Also, the board approved a $5,000 donation to add to Ed Clendenin's $20,000 donation in the memory of his father. Together, these funds begin an endowment for the preservation of the 376 archives.
