Before I came to this Photo Reconnaissance Group and saw what it was doing to pave the way for Ihe big |jiL5li, I thought that most of the aerial snapshooters' work was taking photographs of Hie damage done by our planes. I did not realize that they are largely responsible not only for. the targets which are picked for our bombers to hit but also for our bombers finding those targets. They not only obtain the data from which maps can be drawn but they also carry on a system of espionage so effective that it sup- week during- flic period ill which planting, cultivating and Inn-vesting; must be done without needing more gasoline, than for the 300 miles provided by Ms special ration together with whatever mileage is available in his basic "A" ration.

Sometimes it Is necessary lo swoop down to within 200 feet of the target. This ; is called a dicing mission, because the pilot knows lie is gambling with death It was impossible to tell from his actions whether Parker was setting out on one of these dangerous .sorties. Grinning, he waved cheerful good-bye to his ground crew. There was the usual "sweating out" while hc was gone. When the radio brought word of his return the jeep dashed lo the lan'dlng place.
