We lost one aircraft in attacking the Mestre M/Y but our results are among the best this Group has accomplished. Bomb strike photographs show as pretty a bomb pattern in the yards as the most exacting briefing officer could ask. Lt. Bradley’s crew, all nine and one posthumously, received the coveted D. F. C. from General Twining at Bari. This crew alone claims fifteen enemy aircraft on the Regensburg mission. An interesting little note was General Twining’s presentation of 15th AF patches to each man.
