This fragment of radio chatter from a WW2 Lancaster on a bombing run over Germany is eerie. They talk just like old matinee stars. Things go a bit wobbly when the bally Hun starts firing at them, but the skipper soon calms things down.

And when you've finished being awed, you can LOL uncomfortably at this. If we had to fight Hitler now.
