In England, the war goes one. Today, Verne’s brother-in-law, Kenneth E. Cline, flew his sixth mission with the 392nd Bombardment Group (H) as the co-pilot of B-24 #118. Thirty B-24s dropped 1,240 bombs on the marshalling yards at Munster.1 The target was obscured and bombing was by H2X. Flak was meagre and inaccurate and there was no German fighter opposition.2
All of the aircraft recovered safely at Wendling at 1700.
