24 March 1945

Target: Ceske Budejovice Marshalling Yard, Czechoslovakia

On 24 March the Group bombed again in Czechoslovakia on the first mission in a long time to this country. The target was the marshalling yard at Ceske Budejovice. Captain Thackston led the formation against this undefended target. The patterns around the two aiming points were scattered but both of them carried completely across the marshalling yard. the two roundhouses and workshops were caught in the patterns as well as the passenger station and the freight yards.
