Bad Weather Over Emden: Nineteen aircraft of the 384th Bombardment Group (H) took off for today's mission to attack the port facilities in Emden, Germany. Clouds obscured the primary target forcing the wing leaders to seek a target of opportunity. The city of Aurich, Germany, northeast of Emden, had the bad luck to be in the clear, and so received the brunt of the attack.
