I figure 3 Spits lost in a single battle would stand out in the records;
Anyways, I figure if I can get the dates of the losses I can check out the famous LW claim list to see who claimed on the same date, time & place;

Thank you all--ahead of time;

Nick: see my reply to you on the Luftwaffe portion of this Board
