NOTES:

Gets credit for 3 & 3/4 missions...Flew 15 missions in lead aircraft.

My Comments: "I do not know what the credit means. I suspect that it means credit toward 65 missions."

The mission shown for 14 Oct 1944 should be 15 Oct 1944.

QD stands for “qualified dual.” Evidently I was considered to be in training for 1st pilot or flight lead.

The original does not have columns for Aircraft Number, Mission Number, or Target. I added these data.

The questioned targets mean that I do not know whether I flew the morning or afternoon mission.
