any allied claim on 13 Dec. 1941 at 18.15 in the North of Morlaix airport ?

Dear all,

Any allied claim on 13 Dec. 1941 at 18h15 at the North of Morlaix airport ?

I explain why this question.

we found the remains of a Heinkel 111 near Morlaix airport. As per Luftwaffe Archives (thanks Matti), and also confirmed by local testimonies, this machine crashed on 13 Dec. 1941 at 18h15.

It looks very much like an engine failure at take off, however, I would like to be sure that this machine was not shot down by an allied fighter shortly after take off.

Thus my question.....

Any allied claim on 13 Dec. 1941 at 18h15 at the North of Morlaix airport?

thanks in advance, guys.

GC

GILLES,

Sadly the probability of the accident being related to an engine fire is greater than that of a RAF claim that night or day.

According to Tony Woods Claims List

Night 12-13. December 1941
RAF 11 Group: Night-Interception
RAF 11 Gp. F.I.U. 1 Beaufighter If 19.47-22.45 Interception 0 - 0 - 1 Unident. No casualty Lowestoft
Claim 12.12.41 Pilot 11 Group F.I.U. 0 - 0 - 1 Unident: 22.00 ca: off Lowestoft
13. December 1941
RAF 11 Group: Offensive-Patrol (Rhubarb)
RAF 11 Gp. 303 Sqn. 4 Spitfire Vb 11.23-12.45 Rhubarb 0 - 0 - 0 n/a 1 Cat.B Flak N.E. France
Cat.B 13.12.41 Pilot: OK 11 Group 303 Sqn. Spitfire Vb: RE - Flak: over France
RAF 11 Group: ASR-Escorts
RAF 11 Gp. 91 Sqn. 2 Spitfire Vb 14.00-15.20 ASR-Escort 0 - 0 - 0 n/a 1 Cat.B Flak Berck-sur-Mer
Cat.B 13.12.41 Pilot: OK 11 Group 91 Sqn. Spitfire Vb: DL - Flak: Berck-sur-Mer
14. December 1941
RAF 10 Group: Interception-Patrol
RAF 10 Gp. 600 Sqn. 2 Beaufighter II 09.23-11.35 Interception 0-1-0 He 111 1 Cat.Em Return-fire Plymouth
Cat.Em 14.12.41 F/Lt. G.C. Imlay: KIA 10 Group 600 Sqn. Beaufighter II: R2312 He 111: off Plymouth
Cat.Em 14.12.41 Sgt. P.G. Pearce: KIA 10 Group 600 Sqn. Beaufighter II: R2312 He 111: off Plymouth
Claim 14.12.41 Pilot 10 Group 600 Sqn. 0 - 1 - 0 He 111 10.45 ca: off Plymouth

KG 100 did have several engine fires too and accidents (fatals)...I tried to find a He 111 Picture, but mine was taken at Sables d'Olonnes on 1940....a belly landing....no match for place and year (and type of accident)...Sorry.

Adriano
