1/Lt. Malcolm G. Armstrong
338th FS - 06 June 1944 - 21 June 1944 (Prisoner of War)
Born in 1918
"He bailed out of the aircraft and I saw his chute open and I let down through the overcast to see him land successfully very near the coast in a slightly flooded area. It was impossible to determine the exact location due to weather conditions but I kept a careful record of the time and courses flown back to base and on the basis of these calculations believe that Lt. Armstrong landed about 3 miles N W of Dokkum, Holland. I circled Lt. Armstrong after he had reached the ground and he waved to me as he started to walk away."
Lt. Armstrong was imprisoned in Stalag Luft VII A, Moosburg. Most of those that were downed during this same period were usually imprisoned in Stalag Luft III, Sagan.
