Me 110 Night Fighter Loss 15th June 1944

In the early hours of 15th June 1944 Squadron Leader Russ Bannock and Flight Lieutenant Robert Bruce shot down a Me 110 whilst it was landing. They were operating in the area of Bourges Avord/Chateau Roux, France.

Does anyone have a similiar Luftwaffe loss on this night that might match this claim? I don't have access to Luftwaffe losses so can anyone help?

Many thanks in advance,

David

16.6.44: near Roubaix; 8 km west of Tongeren; south of L´Ecluse near A/F Le Culot; 17 km east of Laon

thats the places for lost nightfighters I found.

Hi Khorat,

Do you have the names of the crew lost at those locations and the times?

Thank you,

David.

I do have interest on this and others Bannock and Bruce´s claims. Any data would be welcomed too.
Yours
