Damage to HMS Furious in april 1940 off Norway

Hello friends,

I´m looking for data about the Luftwaffe attacks/damage on/of HMS Furious in april 1940 off Norway. I have from various sources the information, that:

a) She was attacked on 11.4.1940 by He-111 of KG.4,
b) On 16.4.1940 or 18.4.1940 she was damaged by a FW200 1./KG.40,
c) On 25.4.1940 she sustained a near-miss from a bomb in the Narvik area and had turbine damage which compelled her to return to the UK for repairs.

Can someone confirm or clear this data?

Thank you

Darius

a) She was attacked on 11.4.1940 by He-111 of KG.4,
Not by KG 4 but III./KG 26 with a SC 250 bomb

b) On 16.4.1940 or 18.4.1940 she was damaged by a FW200 1./KG.40,
16.4.1940 No mention on KG 40 but II./KG 26 had 2 near-miss on a aircraft carrier at Harstad
Source: Luftwaffe Lagebericht No 224
18.4.1940 No attacks, only recon (one aircraft carrier near Tromsö)
Source: Luftwaffe Lagebericht No 226

c) On 25.4.1940 she sustained a near-miss from a bomb in the Narvik area and had turbine damage which compelled her to return to the UK for repairs.
Could not find anything
