UMS 11/17/42 On this date the fifth combat mission for the Group was scheduled. Six planes of the 67th and 68th Squadrons took off for the Maupertus Airdrome at Cherbourg. One plane turned back due to mechanical failure and the five proceeded to the target.
The target area was completely obscured by clouds and therefore no bombs were dropped - in keeping with the policy of bombing Military Objectives only in occupied countries. General Hodges went along on this mission with the 67th's Major MacDonald.
