according Mombeek 253 Sqd=1 ????

610 Sqd=3+ 1 damaged

Dover/Folkestone 18h20 (german time)
64 Sqd=??(2 or 3) source Caldwell

Hello Michel,

Hi Alex

I don't have quite the same claims by Luftwaffe.

35 claims by Bf.109 + 22 by Bf.110 =57

from various sources,I have (151°Sq: hurricanes P 3302,P 3304 + PO Debenham badly shot up,serial unknown)

54°Sqd:N3160 shot down Datford (59 miles of Margate by the road)

According Caldwell and new book on JG54:two Hurricanes of 56°Sqd (P 2970 and ??,two Spitfires of 64°Sqd:X 4018 and a second forced-landed) with no more precisions.
