Certificate #1



I certify that on April 8, 1943, at approximately 14:00 PWT I was flying four (4) ship formation as Lt. Cook’s wing man. While flying in trail as fourth man, I saw Lt. Jago around the side of a large cumulus cloud at 9,000 ft. When I last saw him, he was in a gentle turn going around the side of this cloud. As I came around the cloud Lt. Jago was not in position. After circling the area for about 10 minutes, looking for him, I returned to my home base, because my gas was running low.
