Gotha shot down 19/20-5-1918

During a raid on London a Gotha of 15/Bog.3 was shot down by Capt.Brand and crashed at Leysdown, Isle of Sheppey. One source gave the gunner as Vfw.Heinrich Heilgers but another book suggests he did not belong to 15 Staffel and he was buried on the Continent. Could anyone comfirm this crew please, I have Ff Vfw. Fritz Bloch, and B Oblt. Rudolf Barthkowski,

Regards

Brian Bines

Christopher Cole and E.F. Cheesman, The Air Defence of Britain, 1914-1918, ISBN 0 370 30538 8 (Putnam, 1984) list all those you've named as crew of the shot down Gotha which broke up and crashed "near the Harty landing ground."
