Today ends the first year of the 449th Bombardment Group. Tomorrow is its anniversary. No elaborate plans have been made but all members of the organization are conscious of the tremendous changes which have effected every member of the Group during the past year. An attack was made against the M/Y at Alessandria, Italy. One airplane was lost. The strange Italian spring continues to disprove the travel ads. Today was cold and uncomfortable. Many changed into their winter underwear!
