Operational Narrative – “B” and “C” Forces :
  1. General Narrative. “B” Force. Twelve aircraft plus one flying spare took off at 1638 hours to form the “B” Force of the 94th CBW. The assembly was made at the Glatton buncher at 14,000 feet. The briefed course was flown over England and departure from the coast was made one minute late.
     The IP [Initial Point of Bomb Run] was reached as briefed one minute late at 25,500 feet.
     It was necessary for the lead bombardier to make large corrections on the bombing run due to the difficulty of picking up the small target. Bombs were dropped while the lead ship was in a turn to the left. The formation at that time was somewhat spread out.
     No rally after bombing was made, the formations returning individually, as briefed.
     While the formation was over the channel, the camera ship, one ship with wounded aboard, and the deputy lead ship left the formation and came home alone.
     The descent and return at base was carried out as briefed.
     Difficulties encountered were mainly those found in locating the target and the unplotted flak guns at the enemy coast.
     Neither box encountered enemy fighter opposition. Flak was encountered at the target by both forces. “B” Force was hit by light and accurate flak at the enemy coast on the route out. The deputy lead ship was knocked out of formation with a runaway prop.
  2. General Narrative. “C” Force. Thirteen aircraft were scheduled to fly as “C” Force of the 94th CBW on the mission of 24 June, 1944. Aircraft 42-97193, pilot Trombley, blew a tire on take off and was replaced by the aircraft scheduled as a flying spare. Take off was made by the 12 ships at 1656 hours.
     The assembly on the Glatton buncher was carried out as briefed, with the formation well formed ten minutes before the scheduled departure from the buncher.
     The departure from the buncher was made two minutes early on course. The briefed course over England was flown nearly as briefed with little difficulty. Two Groups of B-24’s were encountered east of London, but did not hold up the formation.
     The English coast was reached at the briefed time at 25,500 feet. The IP, at the French coast, was reached one minute late at the same altitude.
     The scheduled flight plan was followed as planned between the IP and target. Due to the fact that the bombardier was unable to pick up the small target on the first run and no 360° turns were permitted, the same heading was maintained. A target of opportunity, the west choke point of the marshalling yard at St. Pol, France, was attacked.
     After bombing the briefed route was again reached and followed with only slight deviation. Departure from the French coast was made two minutes early at 25,000 feet. Let down was carried out without incident and the formation returned to base. Landings were made at 2042 hours.
  3. Aircraft Not Attacking. As previously mentioned one aircraft of the “C” Force failed to take off. The remaining twelve aircraft attacked a target of opportunity.
     All of the aircraft of the “B” Force attacked. The flying spare with that formation returned as planned.
  4. Aircraft Lost. No aircraft were lost on the Mission of 24 June, 1944.
  5. “B” Force Leader. Lt. Richard H. Brooks, flying in aircraft 44-6078, led the ”B” Force.
  6. “C” Force Leader. Captain Harry B. Holsapple, flying in aircraft 42-102955, led the “C” Force.
[Signed] Clinton F. Ball, Lt. Colonel, Air Corps, Operations Officer


Supplement to Operational Narrative:
  1. Due to a misunderstanding by the Lead Navigator of the “C” Force, the aircraft formed at 16,000 feet instead of at the briefed altitude.
  2. Lt. Lester W. Boardman was the Lead Navigator of the “C” Force on the Mission of 24 June, 1944.

Preliminary Damage Assessment:
  1. The targets for today’s mission were a NoBall Construction Works at Fleury and a Ski Site at Crepy, both in France. Photography was good for both boxes.
  2. The bombs of the box on Crepy fell in a sparsely wooded area just south of Coupelle-Neuve, France, four (4) miles northwest of the target.
  3. The box on Fleury, bombed a target of opportunity, the west choke point of the marshalling yard at St. Pol, France. The railroad repair facilities have been previously hit as well as the eastern part of the city, but there is some rolling stock in the marshalling yard. St. Pol is the junction of four railroad lines, four main highways and some secondary roads. The attack fell just west of the western choke point and the main tracks are cut in this section at least five times. There are bombs on and around the main highway junction. The pattern measures 1,371 [feet] x 2,142 [feet].
