Helmut Wick kills on 25th August 1940

PLEASE FIND BELOW A REQUEST I HAVE RECIEVED FROM A FRIEND.
I AM SURE SOMEONE ON THIS FORUM WILL BE ABLE TO HELP?


Pilot P/O Keith Gillman. Keith was posted missing in action after combat
over the English Channel on 25 August 1940. And there are many myths and
mis-information about him! This includes the official version that he was
shot down - I have never believed that he was.

I need to look into the claims of Helmut Wick for that afternoon, I think he
claimed two RAF aircraft, one of which was a Hurricane, in the Portland area
around late afternoon. I believe one of these was a Hurricane (please
correct me if I am wrong). What I need to establish is who the pilots of
those two RAF casualties were (thus probably eliminating Keith Gillman from
the equation). Do you happen to know?

This is all as a result of some information I received recently which,
although seemingly not making too much sense, nevertheless I have to check
out. Finding out who those two British aircraft belonged to that Wick
claimed is thus essential!

I have looked on various websites, etc, for details of Wick's claims, and of
course 'BoB - Then and Now', etc, but with no luck.
