From Hawker Typhoon pilot, Frank Chalmers Johnson, who served in the ETO. The red link below is the source for his complete transcript.
Frank Johnson, holding a model of “his” aircraft, RB396. He is still with us, and we are talking to him…
But what bugs me most now and this is a thing that it plagues me, it really plagues me now when I think about all the destruction that I did and the people that I know that I had killed through my activities [as a Hawker Typhoon pilot, a single-seat fighter-bomber aircraft]. And that bothers the hell out of me. It bothers me so much that it even wakes me up at night thinking about it.
I got shot down [on] March the 30th, 1945. And I crashed my head, my forehead crashed up against the ring site, you won’t know what that is but the ring site, that’s supposed to have a sponge rubber flange around the edge of it so that if you did hit your head on it, you wouldn’t get hurt. But I cracked my head on it and really split it open.
The gentleman interviewed passed on in 2013. I call your immediate attention to his revealing statement about 35:30 thru 37:31 in the interview.
For this reason, I posted it on Partnering With Eagles under Constitutional Issues, instead of People.
Brits had to give up their guns in 1965 (!); I had no idea that this occurred so long ago.
This statement is a stern warning to us with Government intent on destroying our second amendment.
