Going down town ! 100 mile flight.

Posted on an alternate 5 a/c Bombardment Target. DOUAI Airfield home of the Elite Hun pilots.

0652 hrs cranked up and departed scattered dark and white fluffy clouds 6-8/ 10ths cover 5000-10000ft. No mans land to the target Black puffs all over the sky so heavy u can walk on them. Bombed on leader drop. Then 2 e/a came climbing up. I broke from the flight to draw off the scouts then ran for home. A 3rd Hun was spotted attacking the flight.

Results: 20 40lb Bombs hit edge of Airfield, ( threw dirt everywhere, the hanger tents really got dirty)
1 a/c missing. 1 e/a claimed by Carter.
