  • Diversion Mission

No information has yet been found which describes what the 392nd Bomb Group was assigned to do on this mission. However, on 30 Sept 1943, Col Edward J. Timberlake Jr. (Commander, 2nd Bombardment Division) sent this letter to the 392nd: "It gave me great satisfaction to note the way your group executed the ordered flight plan on the Mission of 23 September 1943. The timing indicated good air discipline and navigation, two of the prize requisites of a successful mission." That letter was endorsed by Col Leon W. Johnson (Commander, 14th Combat Wing) who wrote: "1. It is a pleasure to forward this communication. 2. I have been quite impressed by the willing and military manner in which your group proceeds with its assigned tasks."
