Perhaps the most incredible pistol shot of history
Under those conditions, an event cannot be confirmed. But, as Winston Churchill said, if it is not true, it deserves to be.
The man is a treasure, especially for having served in *India*!

Good shooting, I read this a few years ago. It is the sort of thing that would make Colonel Cooper swell with pride, too.
I had a neighbor who was a transport pilot in the CBI theater and flew the hump delivering supplies to China. He had a picture of himself with I can't remember, Mao or Chou-en-Lai, and told a story of how at one dinner where the pilots were guests of Mao's army, his friend turned to him and said with astonishment, "This man thinks he's going to take over China!" This man was Chou himself. Mickey always wore an old Navy blue ball cap with some WW2 airforce insignia on it. When I found he had flown the hump, he said with a little embarassment, "Thanks, I needed that."
