Re: Question about Gerhard Backhorn's sidearm

Spot on George, i remember reading about a British officer wounded on D Day infront of a German Pillbox, hero style as he lay on his back, drew his revolver intending to lob .38 bullets through the pillbox slit.
With his feet pointing towards the enemy he drew aim...and shot a hole through his left foot !!

Weren't some aircrew killed by their own side arms by irrate civilians?
