Reminds me of a joke/anecdote.

After WWII, Douglas Bader was holding a talk in a posh all girl's school.

"One day I was in the air and these two Fokkers came from nowhere", he said "I had to outmanoeuvre them to try and shoot these Fokkers down, but these Fokkers were..."

At which point the headmistress interjected and explained: "Ladies: A Fokker is a type of plane that the German's flew in WWII"

To which Bader replied: "This is very true, but these Fokkers were in Messerschmitts"

Which reminds me of a story about the old Aussie cricketer of the immediate post war years... Neil Harvey.  He was asked if the modern player, has to handle more pressure than in his day...

"Pressure, I'll tell you what pressure is. Pressure is a Messerschmitt up your arse, playing cricket is not."

Harvey had been a fighter pilot in WW2

What always niggles me about this apocryphal anecdote is that no German was flying Fokkers in WW2. Fokker was a Dutch company which started out in Germany before WW1, when it supplied machines like the peerless triplane of Red Baron fame for the German air effort, but had moved back to NL by 1919, and in WW2 only supplied the Dutch air force which was pretty much entirely destroyed on the ground in the Blitzkrieg of 1940.

Bader could have talked about Focke-Wulfs, but that would have spoiled the story.
