132 Squadron losses - 29th April 1944

Good night to all!
On 29th April 1944, Maj. Hans-Joachin Jabs was coming to land at Deelen when he was surprised by a patrol of Spitfires IX led by W/C Geoffrey Page. He shot two Spit before landing and abandoning his Bf 110.
F/O John Coulton survived on FF*G, HK639.
I would like to know the name, serial number and code of the second Spitfire shot down by Jabs that day.

Glad in advance for all

Adriano

Hi Adriano,

Page´s rank was S/L that time.
Chris Thomas published interesting pictures regarding Jabs and Caulton in his 2nd TAF, Volume 1.

Regards,
Michal

Chris, Karl and Fairlop,
Thanks to both of you! Yes, I have seen those pictures on the book Night Fighters by Hauroth. And there is even a 1970 German magazine relating the History of this air fighting, but never had heard about the second pilot involved. Thanks a lot for both of you!
