416th BG history

Hello

I'm looking for information regarding a 416th BG mission on 5th August 1944, Compiègne marshalling yard, perhaps in this book : Attack Bombers ? We Need You! Ralph Conte. Self-published, 2001. Unit history of the 416th Bomb Group during WW II

Sincerly

Good evening pilot2 !

Ralph Conte writes about the mission in his book on pages 121/122:

"Mission #113 - 5 August - AM - Marigny-Compiegne Marshalling Yard. This was a three and a half hour flight, with our formation taking off at 1245. Major Willetts and Lt. Royalty, BN headed up Box 1. Flights were led by Lts. Osborne and Burg, BN. With no flak, the bombing runs were smooth with four flights scoring excellents and twoo good. All crews returned with no damage. Another milk-run ?"

Unfortunately, there is no loading-list for this mission in the book.

Best regards !

Horst Weber
