Molders let me tell you had a running fight with the Tommies (RAF) damage to my kite thought I'd never see France.
Cloud cover was heavy. Next thing I knew Coming out of the clouds was a RAF fighter badly damaged
flying the wrong way toward France flew formation with him and wrote on my clipboard with an arrow pointing in the opposite direction...England that way. I saluted him, and went our ways...

This event was based on a true story taken from Adolf Galland's book The First and the Last
