For this mission the strategy of the Fifteenth Air Force, which at the time was not being revealed to Group personnel, continued to anticipate the invasion of southern France. The target was a large Marshalling Yard in the comparatively small town of Miramas, France. With excellent weather, no fighter opposition, and not much flak at the target, Major Goree and Lt. Cran turned in an excellent mission with a score of 52.7 percent. This was the first five box formation flown during the month.
