Trying to ID a rocket carrying Typhoon lost Feb 1945

Greetings from Niederrhein,
In August a Typhoon crashsite was excavated by a German bomb disposal Unit near Uedem after a local Farmer had ploughed up two RPs.
During the next two weeks, a further three RPs were recovered and a 20mm Hispano Mk II with Serial number JR375??. The aircraft parts recovered were minimal,
Oxygen Bottle
Radio TR 1143A Serial number 30560.
Armourplate headrest.
Pitot/static probe.
Two propeller reduction gears and approximately 60% of the associated housing at a depth of 4 meters.
Various Firewall parts.
Flap Indicator.
Ignition Unit.
This Typhoon could belong to a MIA, AHB and JCCC have been contacted and have been asked by myself if they could send me the loss cards of the following three aircraft to try and identify which one it is from the above Serial number of the Hispano and etched numbers found on the reduction gearing.

Typhoon 1b JR296 lost 22nd Feb 1945
Typhoon 1b MN941 lost 22nd Feb 1945
Typhoon 1b JR528 lost 24th Feb 1945

I have had to post this thread on the Forum as the AHB and JCCC are unable to help me further.

Waiting in anticipation

Steve H
