In England after yesterday’s mission to Nürnberg, Verne writes . . . .


All of our ships were out of commission from the hits we received yesterday. Sure glad of it because I was plenty tired up from yesterday. My bottom is still plenty sore from the hit yesterday. We are on battle order for tomorrow. Please God don’t let it be like yesterday’s. The next one will be our 10th mission and then we will be eligible for Staff2. The extra money will come in handy with the new one coming.
