Ordnance Depot Destroyed: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew as the 41st Bomb Wing B Group on today's mission. This Group was assigned to the #2 spot in the wing formation, but due to the failure 'to get properly briefed prior to takeoff' arrived at Control Point #2 ahead of time, and ended up leading the entire bomber force. Good weather prevailed in the target area, enabling accurate bombing.
