From "My Diary of Ops" - the notebook of Flight Sergeant E. Burnett, 419 Squadron R.C.A.F.
(part of a series)
Wed. July 8/42
Took off from Base at 2350 hrs with own crew A/C H. with one 4000 lb bomb
Target:- Wilhelmshaven on the Northern Coast of Germany. This is a dock area turning out submarines and mine layers.
flak was pretty fair but not concentrated.
We had to stooge around before entering target as we arrived too soon.
No E. A/C encountered all our aircraft returned to Base approx. 0430 hrs.
