Location - RAF Bomber Command, 115 Squadron at Witchford, near Ely

Daylight - Daylight operation/mission

Bordeaux - City in the southern part of France near the Bay of Biscay

Flak - German anti-aircraft fire

Op - Operational mission
August 4, 1944 (Friday)

Didn’t get on today – they went on a big daylight, to within a few miles of Bordeaux to an oil storage depot (low level all the way). They left around two and got back around 9:30 (almost eight hours airborne).

Didn’t do anything all day – but I got lots of sleep in.

The boys said there wasn’t any flak whatsoever (hate to miss that kind of an op!).
