343 FS/55th FG Claims on 24 April 1944

I'm researching the loss of a Bf-109G pilot in 4./JG-27 on 24 April 1944 over SW Germany. Evidence points to his opponents as two pilots of the 343rd FS, 55th FG: 1st Lt. Clair D. Porter and 1st Lt. Arthur A. DeYoung. I would be most grateful to know if John Gray's "The 55th Fighter Group vs the Luftwaffe" might mention this action and whether anyone might even have the original encounter/action reports for the fight.

Thanks very much.

Best wishes,
