Excerpts from Letters Concerning Christian Science Wartime Activities

[From a Report of a Chaplain of the Christian Science Denomination]

In the Group I was formerly with, one of the pilots was having difficulty in locating his target. The flights were made at night and he had to find a little signal in the mountains of France where materiel was to be dropped.

I asked permission to go on the flight with them. The mission would take from nine at night until four the next morning. I soon discovered that the argument was fear. It was necessary to come down in valleys between mountain ranges to drop the materiel from five hundred feet. Everything had to be most accurate in navigation and in piloting.
