Oberst Richard Leman is a fictional character who appeared in the Hogan's Heroes episode, Some of Their Planes Are Missing. He was played by John Doucette.

Leman is a veteran of the Norwegian Campaign, having flown Stuka bombers. At Stalag 13, he is assigned the command of "Operation Albatross," designed to infiltrate RAF squadrons in captured planes with special pilots and shoot the British aircraft down from within their own formations.

Hogan butters up Leman by calling him "Daredevil Dick" and expressing admiration for his exploits in Norway through a barracks picture of the Colonel saying "Dangerous, handle with care."

The Heroes eventually outwit Leman and his men by sabotaging the captured planes while Hogan feigns drunkenness at a party.

Errata Edit

Early in the show, Hogan refers to Leman as a Captain, Leman then refers to himself as a Colonel. In the credits, he appears as a Major.
