Shot down in the morning on 1 September 1939 near Warsaw. He 111 H (L1 + KN) of 5.(K)/LG 1?

I wonder if anyone has any pictures of the downed He 111 H

The victory over him is assigned a team of IV/1 Dyon of Brygada Pościgowa, the first victory.

The plane (L1 + KN) crashed near Mieszki Kuligi approx. 10 km south-east. from Pultusk, 7 km to the east. from Nasielsk. 100% damage.

Is there any information about the touch-hit by A/A fire in the region of Modlin?

I have assumption, that not only P.11s hit it, but maybe was a extra support of 40 mm Bofors A/A gun?

So I would like to check it, if it is possible?
