Ju88 loss, 25 May 1941?

Does anyone have record of the loss of a German aircraft (probably Ju88)off the NE coast between Hull and Newcastle at around midnight 25 May 1941? If so, any indication of unit and/or cause of loss?

Could it be A-4 W.Nr.738 of the 1./506?

Chris, thanks for looking. Dave - it definitely could be! I have 1./506, with Oblt Löhr as FF. Do you have a precise location and/or cause?

Crew listed as follows:

Oblt. J.Loehr MIA
Oblt. F.Pohl MIA
Ogfr. W.Nimwegen MIA
Uffz.H.Biesterfeld KIA (body washed ashore and buried at Great Bircham on 29 June).

Cause & exact location (other than N.Sea off Norfolk coast) not specified.

This info can also be found in Peter Cornwell's listings in The Blitz - Then & Now vol.3 on p.35

German records would indicate this would be 26-27 May?
