1944‑04‑27 96 322 Target: V-Weapon Service Bunker (under construction)
Type: CROSSBOW (V-Weapons)
Location: Sottevast, France
V-Weapons Attacked: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew as an independent group (no wing formation) on the first of two missions today.

However, most bombs were dropped right on the target area.
