yes Extraneous Hartman flu 6 missions against the US airforce and shot down 6 P51 mustangs confirmed...in 4 of those missions he did not see the Enemy!
The other mission he and his wingman attacked a squadron of mustangs getting 2 but more mustangs come into the battle very keen to get the guys who just shot down there mates hartman sent his wingman home and kept the attention of his attackers..after 20mins of weaving and running his ME109 ran out of fuel and he bailed out!
his second kill of the war in 1942 was the second top ace of the USSR. he also was shotdown 14 times and not a mark on him....all in the ME109...if you want a good read the blond knight of germany.

Tigercub


Yes it was an excelent read

Hartman was the top scoring ace of any war.

Parachuting airman - yep, it was Udet.

May, 1918, Udet was back at the front, in command of Jagdstaffel 4. One day he got a little careless and was shot down by the gunner in a two-seater. He took to his parachute, which briefly tangled in his Fokker's tail. It shook loose; Udet dropped uninjured into no-man's-land and made his way back to his staffel that same day.

Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders

the 7. and 8 battalion was part of the original 51 highlander division in France

the 1. battalion was part of 14th Brigade on Crete

the 2. battalion was part of 12th Indian brigade at Singapore

all 4 of them were almost completely destroyed

they started the war with only does infantry battalion. the rest of the battalions were reserve or had been converted

the 5. and 6. had been converted to anti tank and the 9. became anti air.

3. Fought mostly in France & North Africa Also in Italy, Burma, Malaya, Belgium, Holland & Germany.
4. Regiment was almost totally annihilated -- The loss of a Bn or 2 at seperate times does not mean annihilation, the following list of battle honours shows it was very much alive and kicking
The Second World War– Somme 1940, Odon, Tourmauville Bridge, Caen, Esquay, Mont Pincon, Quarry Hill, Estry, Falaise, Dives Crossing, Aart, Lower Maas, Meijel, Venlo Pocket, Ourthe, Rhineland, Reichswald, Rhine, Uelzen, Artlenburg, North-West Europe 1940, 44–45, Abyssinia 1941, Sidi Barrani, El Alamein, Medenine, Akarit, Diebel Azzag 1942, Kef Ouiba Pass, Mine de Sedjenane, Medjez Plain, Longstop Hill 1943, North Africa 1940–43, Landing in Sicily, Gerbini, Adrano, Centuripe, Sicily 1943, Termoli, Sangro, Cassino II, Liri Valley, Aquino, Monte Casalino, Monte Spaduro, Monte Grande, Senio, Santerno Crossing, Argenta Gap, Italy 1943–45, Crete, Heraklion, Middle East 1941, North Malaya, Grik Road, Central Malaya, Ipoh, Slim River, Singapore Island, Malaya 1941–42

5Bn & 6Bn converted to Anti Tank Artillery (91 & 93 AT Rgt) in Nov 41 & 6Bn to 54 & 58 LAA Rgts.

5. one of the battalions was train as air land troops. and was part of a para drop ??

Some of these questions are similar to How long is a piece of string?? and are authors interpretations instead of factual.

1. As a proper noun.

2. Allegorically.

3. As part of an inferential argument.

ha, very good. I'm sure the US Army used #2 and #3 quite often.

But of course I was looking for 3 proper nouns. The tank is the easy one. I'll give you a second - The US Army Quartermaster school in WWII was at Camp Lee, now Fort Lee, Virginia (where else?)

edit: the where else was rhetorical…not a second location named after Lee.

I was also hoping some of the many new members might enjoy this older thread.

there you go. A Type IXC U-Boat sank the Robert E. Lee (I don't think it was a USN ship, civilian), a 'passenger steamer', about 45 miles off the mouth of the Mississippi River in the Gulf of Mexico. About 45 passengers of 400-some drowned. A few minutes later the U-Boat was sunk in turn by a USN P-3 aircraft with a loss of all hands. The U-Boat wreck was recently discovered and there is an interesting set of new underwater photos circulating on the web right now.
