13 bombers. One, a B-24 on 15 February, 1943, "Railway Express" of the 44BG, flown by 1/Lt Rufus A. Oliphant Jr.. All the crew perished. Two others, both B-17s on 23 January, 1943. A P-47 NW of Paris on 13 May, 1944. A Typhoon on D-Day at Beaumont le Roger. A P-47 S of Pacy-sur-Eure on 12 June, 1944. A P-47 at Coutances on 22 June, 1944. A P-47 E of Paris on 27 August, 1944. Channel pilot. His 1st victory, a Spitfire N of Hythe, 5 July, 1940. 20 victories in Russia. His first Soviet victories being three SB-2s on 22 June, 1941. Over 500 combat missions. Flew combat missions for five years. Wounded seriously several times, once on 8 September, 1941 during Operation Barbarossa; again on 1 June, 1943, in Werk# 16391. On 1 June, 1943, he was mistaken by Wilhelm Steinmann, as a Spitfire, and shot down. For his punishment, Steinmann was sent to Romania. He bore the marks of his valor, said Johannes Steinhoff. "He had a piece of plastic in his skull, and a face whose two halves no longer quite matched". This, a result of a crash in 171559 after combat with "4 mots". So disgusted with the Luftwaffe High Command, he renounced his RK, but continued to oppose the Allied bombing raids up to the very end. Photo
