224 Sqn ORB or combat report on 16 February 1941

According to the book "1941 the turning point, vol 1" by John Foreman, on 16 February 1941, a Bf 110 engaged off Stavanger the Hudson T9344 of 224 Sqn RAF, which was damaged. Plt Off Holmes and his crew were safe and returned to Great Britain.

On the German side, the Bf 110 D-3 WNr 4265 of Stab III./ZG 76 took off from Forus, Norway, for an operational sortie but didn't return. The pilot, Ltn. Dieter Uhlmann, and his gunner, Gefr. Helmut Hochleitner, were both lost.

Foreman says Uhlmann engaged the Hudson and later crashed into the sea.

If someone has the ORB for 224 Sqn for this day or the combat report, I will be interested to see what the British crew reported, especially if they claimed hits on the Bf 110. Thanks in advance

Th2 224 Sqn ORB is available on the web but Combat Reports for Coastal Command are rare. I have that at 1220 hrs on this date, P/224 Sqn was damaged 10 miles west of The Naze, ac damaged and WOp wounded but they did not file a claim for any damage to the Bf 110

Thanks Chris

By the way when you say that 224 Sqn ORB is available on the Web, do you mean the National Archive website where you can buy ORB files or something else ? I googled for it but find nothing.
