Looking for info on RAF attack on Wilhelmshaven (Shillig Roads) on 04.09.39

Hello,

I'm looking for eye-witness or participant accounts from both the German and British sides relating to the raid on Wilhelmshaven (Shillig Roads) on 04.09.39 by Blenheims and Wellingtons. This was the first significant raid on Germany of the war, resulting in several Blenheims and two Wellingtons shot down by flak and fighters. This is for a major combat painting on this subject by "Eagles Over Europe" Art Director Jack Fellows.

Regards,
