VVS Victories 25 May 1943

I hope to learn whether VVS records or memoirs might mention the shooting down on 25 May 1943 by Soviet fighters of two He 111 bombers from 9./KG-27 near Izyum (Izium near Kharkiv in Ukraine). One He 111 (Lt. Erich Frielinghaus) was seen to crash 12 km east of Izyum and the other (Stfw. Theodor Stolpe) was thought to have gone down about 18 km. southeast of Izyum. The action took place at 1340 hours.

I would be most grateful for any information on this fight. Erich Frielinghaus (promoted posthumously to Oblt.) received the German Cross in Gold in 1942 as a Bordfunker. He flew 326 combat missions with III./KG-27, including in the Battle of Britain and the Blitz.

Best wishes,
