Re: I./JG 76 losses on op. Market Garden

HI both

I made a mystake, a bit...moving Market Garden a month later sorry for this...
Seeing victory list, they claimed 5 P-51s on sept 11, and 7 B-17s on the next day...
then next victories on sept. 27...i believe it was related to bad weather, which also lead to not very succesfull start of Market Garden op.
BUT, some losses were recorded during those two weeks (Andreas we know the numbers right? )So did they try to fly or try to fly against the Dakotas etc...or was it connected to other air operations?combats?

As I said I am interested in this I./JG 76 only due to the fact that most of the pilots were former ZG 76 pilots and want to know soem stories if there are any possible to read out of it. John thus info on Dziarnowski and Bischoff, and others would be warmly welcomed...
