Re: JG2 losses 19/8/42

Thanks Chris, my understanding was that Epsiger was lost on the English side of the Channel after colliding with a 'Spitfire' and was credited with this by his returning wingman.

Leo, the combat report you mention is actually one by Hptm Leie. He claimed a Spitfire at 10.50, before being shotdown himself. Ofw Wurmbeller didn't make any claims during this sortie (the only one of his five during which he didn't make one).

Regards,

Steve
