2 August. Section moved through the Drone area, joining Maquis Lt. Kirsch and his 15 men with whom Section would work. At midnight on the 12th two high tension towers, 900 ft. apart, and each 70 ft. high were toppled using C2 on 2 legs of each tower, cutting the line between Upie and Montmeyran..
15 August. Section moved to next target, a stone bridge on R.N.538. Security was posted, demolition charges were placed, security withdrew, and a perfect demolition job was completed.
On return trip to base the Section saw American planes bomb Valence and Jerry AA bring down three B-17s. Maquis brought two of a crew that bailed out to the Section the next day, preventing capture by Germans.
18 August. The report for this day is a spine-tingling 2-page account of how the American and Maquis Sections attacked and disposed of 50 Germans in the town of Montmeyran. Several received hits from enemy shrapnel but "were not seriously hurt."
20-21 August. Through the night long, heavily guarded and well camouflaged convoys were observed moving north on R.N.7. Early on the 21st a lone truck full of Jerries was ambushed; 30 killed.
Later on the 21st Section was overrun by advance elements of the 36th Division.
