LW losses France, 6 July 1943

Can anyone give me details of the losses incurred by II/JG2 and 3./JG27 on this date. I believe they encountered the Northolt and Kenley Wings and suffered the loss of several aircraft. JG26 also lost two Fw190.

According to Caldwell JG26 WD 3./JG27 lost two Bf109 and had another damaged, with one pilot killed and another wounded. II/JG2 lost four Bf109, with one pilot injured.

Can anyone identify the pilots and the types of Bf109?

regards

Keith

Many thanks chaps. It seems Uffz Herbert Körber, rather than Köhler, later claimed two viermots and survived the war.
