I do not want to over-react, but I have the sinister feeling that the gentlemanly British will not be able to settle the matter quite so according to plan as they have imagined. By way of example, what will happen if i pick out and shoot down one of them and am so unlucky as to shoot right at the film cameraman! What then? Then the whole British Army film be interrupted, the gentlemen will fall into the gravest predicament and put heavy blame on me. How would [one of them] like it if a number of other gentlemen went up to shoot him down and he was filmed being shot down? I believe that if that were the case, he would first shoot down the cameraman… I would be contented with that. I want only to shoot down the cameraman who is supposed to film me being shot down. By all means, I would love to do that!”
