29, 1942 Biskra,
Africa Took off at
12 o'clock to bomb the docks at Souse.
After climbing through a thousand foot
overcast, the whole of North Africa was
covered over. One plane iced up going through
the clouds and the pilot gave orders to
bail out and the navigator was the first
one out. About that time he dropped his
load of bombs and regained control of his
plane so no one else hit the silk. Thayer
was all by his lonesome in the mountains
and hasn't been found yet. The target was
completely covered sow e came back with
our bombs. I flew with Capt O'Carrol.
The Navigator hasn't been found yet.
