Luftwaffe against FAA

Dear Gentleman,
for the "Chronik des Seekrieges" I´m researching FAA losses at the moment (as well as german seaplane losses and that of Küstenfliegergruppen using bombers). For the year 1940 I found the following Luftwaffe claims in Tony Wood´s list probably referring to FAA units involved.
