C. 338th Fighter Squadron, 55th Fighter Group.
E. Just north of Venlo, Germany.
G. Me 109.
H. One (1) Me 109 Damaged.
I. I was flying No. 2 position in Warcraft Blue flight. I observed an Me 109 coming down in a diving turn to the right. I intercepted him in a climbing turn to the left, and started firing a 20 degree deflection shot at about 150 yards and held fire, one long burst, until approximately a head-on position. I observed two hits at wing root, but no further results, as the E/A passed below me.
I claim One (1) Me 109 Damaged.
2nd Lt., Air Corps.
