Mission Date: 11/03/1945
Mission Comments: The Squadron made a small contribution for day operations against Essen, in what might well prove to be the final liquidation of the target. Over a thousand bombers pounded the city, and 7 aircraft proceed from this Squadron as Blind Sky Markers and Visual Centerers. The attack was carried out in conditions of 10/10ths cloud and results could not be observed, but dense smoke was rising up to about 7,000 feet. Bombing on Skymarkers seemed good, and the raid appeared to be successful and concentrated.
