Missions #114 & #115 Target: Mont-Louis-Fernes

This target was selected with the 578th and 579th Squadrons to go against it while the 577th was to bomb an electrical power installation, if visual conditions existed, about twelve miles east of Calais. The target and briefing information provided to the Group for the (36) crews involved was replete with confusing details. All were briefed on this multiple option mission between 0330 and 0600 hours At 0800, the 578th took off against a NoBall target near the town with (11) ships bombing the area with (527) 100# bombs by GH through a heavy undercast. The 579th with orders to bomb the town visually, likewise the 577th on its target, was held in standby on the ground until around 1515. A this time (22) 579th and 577th crews took off with the 577ths mission to Calais being scrubbed. A total of (21) ship bombed the target area by GH lead releasing (1028 # weapons, unobserved. All mission aircraft returned safely from both missions, the last mission landing around 2000 hours. No enemy reaction was encountered on either raid.
