321st B.G. Headlines page 10 - 18 November 1943
Page ten of the 321st Bombardment Group's post-war 'Headlines' pamphlet covers the group's first raid on Sophia, Bulgaria on 15 November 1943, and the group's move from the 47th Bomb Wing of the North African Tactical Air Force to the 57th Wing of the 12th Air Force. The British 'Tactical Bomber Force' mentioned is probably the Mediterranean Allied Tactical Air Force, which a British commander very briefly, but was an Allied force, and was commanded by General John K. Cannon (also commander of the 12th Air Force) for most of the rest of the war.

This document comes from a pamphlet produced by the 321st Bombardment Group after the war, which told the story of the group's activities from 15 March 1943-15 March 1945 in the form of a newspaper.

Many thanks to Christine Stewart for sending us this document, which came from the collection of her father in law Eugene W. Stewart, a staff sergeant in transportation with the 321st Bombardment Group.
