This booklet entitled 'Instructions For Officers & Men of the Army Air Forces in the Event of Capture or Landing in a Neutral Country' was given to my father, Lt. Ernest Anders Erickson soon after he first arrived in England for combat flying.

Included below are the first 5 pages of the booklet, even though there was never a Page 2. Read for yourself, as it is an interesting read and one that was quite important to every airmen flying over Nazi occupied Europe.
