THE POMEROY GROUP - COMBAT Charles Schleininger corsair "Mission #4 - This mission was pretty much a copy of our previous mission except the flak was lighter. Perhaps the Navy recognized the B-24 was different from anything the Germans had & didn't shoot at us. Again we flew in the #6 position & again the #3 crew feathered the left inboard engine. We all got home safely. No enemy fighters sighted today. Two hole were found in the ship. One piece broke the Plexiglas nose & bombsight frame pretty close to Bill Franklin, our bombardier. Flight time - 6.0 hours. February 20.
