Halifax RG477 loss on 21./22. Feb 1945 over Worms

Hi all, I am researching crew lost in lost on 21./22. Feb 1945 over Worms in Halifax RG477.
According to the RCAF Overseat - the sixth year it looks like they were shot down by the night fighter - possible conqueror would be from NJG2 or NJG6 or NJG11.
According to the reminiscences of Halifax crew member, they were shot down "few minues after leaving the target". All of them survived and later became PoWs.

1. I am interested if would be possible to establish who shot them down? So far it looks like there is lack of details about victories by NJG2 and NJG11 so it will be impossible to match claim with this loss.

2. Would it be possible to establish the position where the crew bailed out or where the Halifax crashed? So far I have found only this isite

Hallo -Betr.: Allenbach/Grumbach habe bei mir für die Halifax RG 477 F/L Flemming Kriegsfeld/Kirchheim-Bolanden als Absturzort. unter Allenbach hab ich selbst die Halifax RG 476 F/O Baxter bei Chorley wird Bad Münster am Stein angegeben. unter der Ortsangabe Grumbach hab ich selbst die Halifax NR 177 F/O Hackman, von Chorley kam die Info Odenbach, liegt einige Km östlich von Grumbach. Der Absturzort der Halifax NP 803 ist bei mir als unbekannt aufgeführt, könnte aber, wenn es bei Allenbach am 21.02.1945 ein Absturz gab, dort abgestürzt sein. Herzliche Grüße Edwin

Any help in this matter and any additional info about this loss from the German side will be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Pavel
