Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk

NOTE ON DATES: IMPORTANT: For consistency, the Date is given as the date the mission TOOK OFF since the precise time of a loss is not always certain. Take Off date is unambigous and fixed in the official records, but obviously in those cases where the incident occurred before midnight UK time, then the Take Off Date will be the same as the Incident Date. Of course, most Bomber Command missions flew through midnight, therefore a Luftwaffe claim against a plane - or a locally generated crash report - may record the incident as occurring on the day following our Take Off Date. Bear this in mind when cross-referencing to our Luftwaffe Victories by Name/Date Database and other Luftwaffe sources. In some cases other sources may quote the date following our date, using locally generated reports as their source. To add to the potential for confusion, remember to take into account a Luftwaffe recorded date will be in local time, 1 hour ahead of UK time. When we discover a validated Incident Date we change our record if necessary

1st/Lieutenant George Godfrey Goldstein, American pilot of the 56th FG 62nd FS, endures mechanical problems (Engine and propeller) aboard his Republic P-47C-2-RE "Thunderbolt" #41-6242, coded LM*L and named 'You Know What' - 'Irma' (From the name of his fiancée), during a bomber escort and strafing mission on airfields in the North of France. He abandoned his parachute and landed on the back of a cow in the Saint-Sauflieu sector, south of Amiens. Wounded in the leg, he is helped by several people who treat him on the one hand, hide him and entrust him to an escape network on the other. He was finally arrested by the Gestapo in Paris, where he was waiting for a guide to take him to Spain on January 18, 1944 with several members of the Resistance. Severely interrogated (Because of his Jewish heritage) in Fresnes Prison, accused of being a spy. Eventually interned in Stalag Luft 1 in Barth, Germany. Liberated on May 5, 1945 by Soviet troops.
