Bf 110 Reconnaissance Unit - Which Staffel?

On 24 August 1940 a Bf 110 of Aufklärungsgruppe Ob.d.L. was shot down into the sea during operations over Sheerness. The crew of Lt. Hofer and two NCOs were reported as missing and the aircraft was lost. Does anyone know which Auf.Gr. Ob.d.L. Staffel the aircraft was from?

Namentliche Verlustemeldung (excuse spelling). It is a report submitted by each unit which suffered personnel killed, missing, captured or wounded and in a number of cases contains aircrfat details

»Wehrmachtauskunftstelle« = Armed Forces Information Establishment.

Full title: »Wehrmachtauskunftstelle für Kriegerverluste und Kriegsgefangene«, so as above + "for War Casualties and Prisoners of War".
