9 November 1944 Mission #198 Target: Metz

The briefed primary was heavy concrete fortifications near General Patton's Third Army which by target name was GR Fortifie-G8Yser, just south east of Metz. At 0315 and 0440 (29) aircrews were given briefing on a mission to be led by a GH ship. At 0645 all aircraft began take-offs with 28 going over the target. Photos showed results of the release of (114) 1000 and 2000# bombs to be poor. Some impacts hit approximately 6500 yards east of the MPI for two squadrons while others landed 2500 yards north of the aiming point. Bad weather again was a hindrance to the success of this mission where no visual sighting was possible. There were no flak or fighters. All ships landed back at base around 1310 hours except for 2/Lt C.E. Byrnes in #495, which landed at Attlebridge.
