  • Short Summary

    US airmen shows off silver cigarette box that stopped a bullet going into his arm.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - dates and locations unclear or unknown.

    L/S bombers in flight. Various shots American airman with two USAF (United States Air Force) officers: the airmen shows off a bullet hole in his leather flying jacket, he then shows us a bullet and a badly dented silver cigarette box with the inscription "May the Lord be with You". Presumably the airman's arm was saved by the silver box which took the impact of the bullet.

    Note: the same airman is featured in UN 772 D - see separate record for details.
