Luftwaffe losses: NE England, July-August 1940

The War Diary of 43 AA Brigade suggests three Luftwaffe losses over NE England in July-August 1940 as follows: night of 16/17 July 1940 - a Heinkel crashed into the sea off Redcar; night of 23/24 July 1940 - an enemy aircraft shot down 12 miles off the river Tees; 12/13 August 1940, a plane seen crashing into sea c.5 miles off Cloughton, N of Sarborough. The Diary claims that each sighting was confirmed by at least two sources - but Luftwaffe Loss Records reveal nothing that matches the claims. Anyone got any ideas?

Re: Luftwaffe losses: NE England, July-August 1940

One idea. In AMWR records are listings of supposedly all downed aircraft. Many of them are not indentifed at all in subsequent reports. I occurs to me that at least some might have been British. I say this because much effort was made by Air Intelligance to apprehend and interrogate POW for all possble info.
