JD417 - 78 Squadron Ju.88 Claim

Hello Everyone:

Can anyone help me identify the Ju.88 shot down by Halifax JD417 of 78 Squadron over Hanover on the night of 8th October 1943?

Any help/advice on aircraft/crew identity would be gratefully received. I have tried Google search but nothing happens for me!

With kind regards - Malcolm.

Hello Malcolm,

According to "Deutsche Nachtjagd - Materialverluste in Ausbilding und Einsatz by Michael Balls, 1999, page 235:

8/9.10.43
6./NJG2
Hannover
Feindflug
Ju.88C-6 Werknr 750478 R4+MP
Lt Ernst Grosz (Gefallen)
Uffz Fritz Dreesen (Vermisst)
Uffz Julius Burow (Gefallen)
Absturz, vermutlich Luftkampf
Hope this is the answer you're looking for.

Regards,
Hans Nauta

Hello Hans:

Thank you for reply and very interesting information. I have only just viewed it although it is nearly two years old! I am just sorry that I did not see it soon to thank you. How I have missed it I do not know. However, better late than never!

Once again – Many thanks.
