Me 109 losses over Bocholt area 13 March 1945

I'm looking for details about the Me 109 pilot's lost over Bocholt area on 13 MARS 1945.

This day, 18 medium bombers (Mitchell and Boston) went in order to bomb the Lengerich marshallingyard. They're escorted by fighters from 145 wing.

On the return to belgium, they've been attacked by 12 Me 109. One Spitfire was lost, and it seems that two Me 109 (for the less) were shot down.

The first was shot by Sammy Sampson, the second by a french pilot.

Does anyone know details about the Me 109 unity ? and may be the names of this unfortunates german pilots ?

Thanks by advance

Fred
