10.(N)/JG 26 on 18.12.1939

Hello,
could somebody comment these victories of 10.(N)/JG 26 on 18.12.1939?

1. Oblt. Johannes Steinhoff Wellington 14.30
2. Fw. Willy Szuggar Wellington 14.30
3. Uffz. Werner Gerhardt Wellington 14.35
4. Uffz. Robert Portz Wellington 14.35
5. Oblt. Johannes Steinhoff Wellington 14.35
6. Uffz. Wilke Wellington n.b. 14.35
[Prien/Stemmer/Rodeike/Bock - Die Jagdfliegerverbände ... Teil 2, p. 226]

Another sources:
6 victories (3 confirmed, 3 unconfirmed)
[Caldwell - JG 26 War Diary, p. 15]

6 victories (3 unconfirmed: Szuggar, Wilke, Portz) between 14.30-14.35
[Shores/Foreman/Ehrengardt/Weiss/Olsen - Fledgling Eagles, p. 149]

It seems that most of the above listed victories are far from truth. The 10.Staffel seems to have attacked the Wellingtons already as they approached to Wilhelmshaven. That means long before 14.30 hours...

5 victories (all confirmed?) - according to Lagebericht West Nr.119. (???)

Best wishes,
