German defence again RAF raid December 5th 1944

Hi,

Trying to determine what Luftwaffe units were involved in apposing the Bomber Command daylight raid on the Marshalling Yards at Hamm, December 5th 1944. Reports suggest that Bf109s got in amongst a number of 3 Group Lancaster's.

Any details welcome.

Thank you

Steve
