Re: 213 and Me110s

It seems to me it corresponds to W. Johnen: ‘Duel under the stars’, page 182 –183, when one flight of 4 Bf 110s was intercepted while on transfer flight from Novi Sad to Hodchak (Odzaci, Serbian province Vojvodina).
No 213 reported intercepting 4 Bf 110s over Backi - at landing ground S.52 - shooting down 3 Bf 110: one crashed in flames, crews escaped, one crash-landed, one dived vertically into the ground.
Johnen quotes 2 crews crashing in flames, one crash-landing, 2 dead, 2 badly wounded, 3 slightly wounded.
So it should be 8./NJG 6.
I almost forgot, in Johnen's narrative and time-line, he places this on 7/9/44, while claims of No 213 are on 6/9/44.
