"Flight Lieutenant Archambault has completed many sorties against such targets as Duisburg, Cologne and Dusseldorf. On one occasion in January 1945 he was detailed to attack Chemnitz. On the outward flight some important equipment became unserviceable. Later trouble was experienced with the port outer engine.
