Re: 9./JG 53 - 17 September 1940

Thank you. There was only one claim for two Me 109s over the Thames Estuary at 16:00 (17:00 CET), so it would certainly match, but I would like to exclude any other possibilites.
According to P/O Bennions, most likely victor of Langer, he fought against five Me 109s. Seems plausible for a Staffel, though certainly weak.
I wonder if the collission seen by F/O Boyle off Dover could have been aircraft of Stab II/JG 53, which returned damaged. Plenty of possibilities, though.
