We finally got a formation over the target. Today our planes attacked Mestre M/Y near Venice. Results were considered good. For so vital a target the enemy air activity was very slight and encouraged the boys considerably. But it’s still cold and disagreeable in these parts. Some of the men complain that their feet have not been warm since arriving at Grottaglie. There is a movie on the base and the British operate a Theater in Grottaglie where movies and stage shows can be seen. There are also several British theaters in Taranto.
