Re: InformAtion concerning loss of Uffz. Matthias Schindler - killed over England 16.01.1941

Hi Rick

His aircraft was shot down at 01.35h by Pilot Officer Richard Playne Stevens, of 151 Squadron based at RAF Manston, flying a Hurricane. This is the first of two aircraft that he shot down that morning (night). His original combat reports for the 16/01/1941 can be downloaded from the National Archive (fee to pay):

He was awarded the DFC for these actions. The original gazette can be downloaded (free) from:
