I wonder if we will ever find out the true story about the Spitfire that attacked Patton's L-4 over France. Was it really from an RAF Polish unit that was nowhere near the area of the attack?

And interestingly enough, Patton's forces once opened fire on a RAF Auster, but did not shoot it down. The pilot was a young man who went into acting after the war; his name was James Doohan. Yes, THAT James Doohan.
The Germans had a bounty on shooting down ANY L-Birds as they knew what kind of hell the could bring to bear from the Artillery.
 
There was a British general officer who used a captured Fiesler Storch for battlefield transport. It's a miracle he did not get shot down by friendly fire.
