Hi Steve

Wurmheller was serving with 1./JG 2 on 19 August 1942. The information about him in action over Dieppe is from It does seem that he had already suffered the broken foot previously as you mention. However, it appears that he had to make a forced landing on his first sortie, claimed two Spitfire fighters and a Blenheim bomber on his second sortie, claimed three Spitfire fighters but was shot down and baled out on his third sortie and claimed a further Spitfire fighter on his fourth sortie. Thus, he was made an emergency landing and was shot down that day.
