Slept until 2:00 this afternoon. I was so tired I could not even make it for dinner & breakfast either. What a flight. I hope I never have to go on another like it. I think the Lord let me back here to show me I have no place in a show like this. Left Bury this morning right in the middle of an air raid. It was 9:30 when we pulled out & just before that the Jerry came over & lit one end of our field with chandler flares & one plane was shot down. We had to drive all the way to London in the fog & got in at 3:00 Fri morning. What a trip. The Red Cross were all closed & we had to sleep on the floor in HQ. Capt Culver came in with us but he got a hotel room To hell with us.

Continuation of November 3, 1943

The target jumped & when the chute opened he kept going. He slipped his harness. I saw another Fort blow up in mid air & two more go down. I got plenty of my bullets into the FW that I shot at but then several of us were shooting but none of us got credit for sending him down. Boy I’m so excited I don’t think I’ll ever sleep again.
