Left San Berdo at 11:30 after shooting a wreck of a trainer plane. Just had two shots & finished them up in a hurry. We were convoyed thru town & had 2 very narrow escapes. I almost took a car that did not stop at our sirens. We arrived back at post at 1:45. Murphy is going out to sister’s with me for Thanksgiving Dinner. He’s from Maryland & a very long way from home. I sure like him & hope we turn out to be good fiends. Am ready now to S-S-S & leave this hole.

Was awakened at 4:00 this morning, There was a mission to Bremen, Germany. We photographed the briefing & then about 7:30 finished & ate . The rest of the morn was taken over by resting and at 10:30 we set up in the interrogation room. We waited until 2:15 for the planes to come back. It was a hot one but they left lots of damage behind. After the interrogation was over we struck our equip & moved to the mess hall to set up. At 7:30 tonite we’ll get all ready for tomorrow. I saw the Col Stone Ground Officer about Byron. Looks like he perhaps will get on our unit yet.
