Donald Macrae mission June 6, 1943

June 6  Raid on San Giovani Ferry slip. Found a note awaiting me last night telling me I was to fly with Fallon's crew in the morning.  Briefing at 7:30 AM. Took off 10:00 AM.  Fallon was OK to fly with and I enjoyed being with his crew. I flew most of the way and did a poor job of flying.  It has been so long since I have done any formation flying. Was a real work out.  Our section San Giovani Ferry slip and the other section took Regio di Calabria.  There was a few scattered cumulus clouds.  Base altitude at 24,000 ft.  There was ack ack and fighters.  The fighters kept with us for 20 - 25 minutes after we the target. Got about 7 hours.  Today nothing seemed to bother me save that I couldn't fly very good formation.  I was fairly comfortable and enjoyed the trip.  It was a lovely day out.  Back and had supper. Washed my hair and shaved and wrote in diary.


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.

Donate directly to the 376 Endowment
