461st BG (H), Mission 59, Toulon Submarine Base

461st BG (H), Mission 59, Toulon Submarine Base

11 July 1944

Lt. Colonel Applegate led the Group in an attack on submarines stationed in the harbor of Toulon. The weather was excellent and the Germans were slow in starting their smoke pots. The flak was only moderate in intensity. For some reason, however, most of the bombs overshot the target to the right with only fair results.

Without gasoline, food, or water it became impossible for these submarines to return to the Atlanti...
