V/KG-40 - RAF Coastal Command Archive Request

I hope I have put this in the correct section. I have a set to a German airman who was KIA with 14./KG-40 on 30th January 1943 when 4 Ju-88's were attacked by 3 Beaufighters of 248 Squadron. Looking in Sea Eagles vol 2 there is a brief snippet from a Coastal Command Intelligence Summary covering this action. I have downloaded the Summary of Events for 248 Squadron (unfortunately no combat reports listed from the surviving RAF crew) and am now looking to order a copy of the Intelligence Summary.
Can anyone confirm if this is the correct file I need and if it is do I just request the relevant number for the week needed (i.e. 140/141) or do I have to order the whole lot (and that is assuming that they are providing this service during the pandemic)?

I presume you bought the Barthelmes material? PM me but surely you have Bloody Biscay?

I do indeed have Bloody Biscay (bought it when it was first published) but it is in storage at a relatives house.

I suggest that you ask some body for a copy of AIR 25/478

Good luck with your project
Carsten
