The boys started out on a mission today but were called back after take off. Nearby there is a delightful little Italian town called Martina Franca. It is located about twenty miles from here in the general direction of Bari. Its people are very friendly and the town seems so much cleaner than most Italian towns. Martina Franca has been relatively untouched by the war. It seems strange to walk its streets and see no British or American troops.
