Missing Crew 10th.April 1940

There was a wartime German request for information on the following missing crew :-

Ofw Walter Brunn
Uffz Willi Grothe
Uffz Theodor Neumann
Uffz Alfons Gusicki

The date given is 10-4-1940 area of Scapa Flow although the British notation says these dates are not always accurate, it also states a Walter Brunn was known to have been with KG 26 but had been transferred to KG 30.
Is anymore information available for this missing crew please,

Regards
Brian Bines

Brian,

In "Fledgeling Eagles" by Shores et al there is mention of this aircraft on page 249

"Two Ju 88s were lost, one 2./KG 30 machine (Ofw Walter Brünn) failing to return after radioing an SOS that one engine had been lost due to a flak hit, whilst a 4 Staffel machine flown by Lt Hans Hohendahl was also missing."

This is recorded in the diary entry for 10/04/40.
