RAF Bomber gunner claim during the night 5-6/07/1941 over Belgium


The Bf110C-7 w/nr.3607 of NJG1 crashed at Gruitrode (Belgium) during the night 5-6/07/1941 and is reported to have been shot down by a gunner of a RAF bomber.

According to ‘ Bomber Command War Diaries ‘ a total of 208 sorties were flown during that night :
65 Wellington and 29 Whitleys to Münster
39 Hampdens to Osnabrück
33 Wellingtons to Bielefeld
13 Halifaxes and 3 Stirlings to Magdeburg
14 Wellingtons to Rotterdam
7 Hampdens – minelaying in the Frisians
5 O.T.U. sorties

Are any additional details known about this victory s.a. name of the gunner, RAF Squadron, type of aircraft ?

Many thanks and best regards
