15 January 1945

Target: Treviso Marshalling Yard, Italy

A whole week passed before the Group was able to fly Mission No. 162. Finally, on the 15th of the month, Major Poole led another four flight formation in a visual attack on the marshalling yard at Treviso, Italy. Many of the bombs dropped short but others fell in the target area for a score of 32.1 percent. There was not too much flak at the target but it was extremely accurate. As a result eight of the twenty-three planes over the target were hit and one man was wounded.
