Hi Alex,


thank you very much for your infos. The Hurricane P3787 was shot down probably by 3/JG20 pilots but they located the claim "west of Etaples".
What do you know about 14.06.40 (only combat losses)?


Regards

Robert

Hi Robert,

Well i have just spent an hour typing out a reply and then lost it so here is a short version.

Could only find four, all Hurricanes.

No serials though. and one pilot.

1 sqdn
73 Sqdn - P/O. David N. W. L. Anthony, KIA.
111 Sqdn
245Sqdn

from JG26 War Diary vol 1 and 2 found the foloing -

17.15 - 22k SE of Vernon-breval - A.Galland - Blenheim
17.28 - Evreux - A. Galland - Defiant/ Battle
17.40 - Dreux - Blume - Battle
17.50 - ? - Gártner - Defiant/Battle
17.50 - ? - Sprick - Hurricane
17.53 - Vernon -Ebbinghausen - Defiant

Ltn. Gustav "Micky" Sprick, claimed a Hurricane.

From Tony Woods pages can be found the following claims for British a/c.

Landry - Battle
Tiedmann - Battle
Tismar - Battle
Schiller - Skua
Hott - Hurricane
Reinhold - Hurricane
Sidow - Hurricane
Montag - Hurricane
Scherer - Spitfire
Haase - Hurricane
Konopka - Hurricane
Seehausen - Hurricane
Grau - Spitfire
Galland - Blenheim
Galland - Defiant
Blume - Defiant
Gártner - Defiant
Sprick - Hurricane
Ebbinghausen - Battle
Tietzen - Battle

I could find no Spitfire loss and did not look for the Skua. the hurricane claims outnumber the losses of four as noted in FCL and FCWD.

hope someone can provide pilots names and serial numbers for the Hurricanes form the squadrons noted. and perhaps others if known.

all for now

night

Alex

Hi Alex,


thanks a lot. I think that most of the German pilots on this stage of war had problems with enemy a/c types and e.g had mistaken the Hurricane with Curtiss, Morane and even with Battle!
This Skua is very interesting I hope that someone will help with this.

Regards

Robert
