We were briefed
for a raid on docks and shipping at Sicily
but it was cancelled and at 11 o'clock we were
briefed again during a red alert to bomb an
ocean liner in the Tunis harbor. Our
squadron led the group with Col. Quick in the
lead ship. I flew #12 with Hart as my co-pilot. The
mission was short (three hours) and the target
was well hit and believed to be sunk. Tunis
has lost its power because very little
flak was thrown up and not a single fighter
was seen except a high cover of spitfires.
returned safely. As usual the Red Cross served
us hot coffee and doughnuts when we landed.
