An RCAF Flight Sergeant's Diary

From "My Diary of Ops" - the notebook of Flight Sergeant E. Burnett, 419 Squadron R.C.A.F.
(part of a series)

Sat June 27/42
11th Trip.

Took off from Base at 2340 hrs. With own crew and aircraft.
Target Bremen again.
Visibility 10/10 clouds and full moon. Went in at 20500 ft. Bombed by T.R.
A few fires and flak was heavy never encountered any enemy air craft. One of our own was weaving back and forth on coming out with his down ward light on. Landed at Base at approx. 0430 hrs. Every thing O.K. All returned safe except O Oranges which had to crash land. No one hurt though.
