was a maximum effort B-17 bombing mission hitting the town of Rabaul,
New Britain on October 8, 1942. At that time Rabaul and Simpson Harbor

attracting a Christmas tree effect of tracers and searchlights each time
one of our aircraft appeared on itís bomb run over the town. It was
kind of scary watching from the back of the line.
