|28 February 1945 |
The busy month of February ended with another double header mission. The target for both Forces was the marshalling yard at Ora, Italy. Major Roberts, still flushing from his promotion, completed his tour of combat duty by leading the Red Force on this mission. The bombs were dropped visually on this "hot" target for a score of 15.6 percent. Nine of the sixteen planes over the target were hit by flak and one man was wounded. Captain Trommershausser led the Blue Force which turned in a score of 28.1 percent. Fortunately the flak was not accurate on this Force and only three planes were holed.
