German reaction to a RAF Daylight Raid Nov 2nd 1944

Hi,

On November 2nd 1944 No.3 Group RAF Bomber Command carried out a daylight attack on the synthetic oil plant's at Meerbeck, Homberg.

I have been sent some information that on this date, the German day fighters units were to engage this formation in force, the details suggest about sixty fighters in total were available. The encounter was in response to Bomber Commands growing daylight operations over the oil plants of Germany. It was only due to the force being sent towards Munster, and not Homberg that the encounter did not materialise.

Can anyone confirm that this was the case, were 60 day fighters scrambled to meet this raid, were they vectored to Munster ?

Any help appreciated.

Regards

Steve
