Luftwaffe Me109 losses November 1, 1940

Can anyone help me find a list of Me109s and pilots that were shot down on November 1, 1940. P/O Cecil Henry Saunder flying Spitfire X4555 QJ-J shot down a Me109 that afternoon before crashing near Hersden with shot up wrists and a bum full of shrapnel.

Are there any lists of pilots and Me109 Wrk no. that were lost that day? Was the pilot killed or taken POW?

Events of Nov 1, 1940:

This aircraft (Spitfire X4555 QJ-?) crashed at Chislet Colliery, Hersden Village, Canterbury. He and his wingman F/O MC Kinder were directed to intercept 50 Ju87's and Me110's, the Stukas were dive bombing a convoy.
Saunders radio failed and after shooting down a Ju87 he could not hear a warning about a Me109 on his tail. The enemy fire broke both his wrists, severed an artery and he had shell splinters in his buttocks. He managed to shoot down his attacker but then crash-landed beside the Canterbury to Ramsgate road where an ambulance picked him up.


Can anyone help?
Lee
