RAF/Luftwaffe mainly night actions June 1940

Hi guys

I'm still rather confused regarding mainly nocturnal engagements during June 1940. Herewith is a list of what I have in my notes, I believe dates are correct but could be slightly out. I seek details of the Heinkels and their crews thus engaged:

11 June: He111 claimed south of Isle of Wight by 145 Sqn (possibly daylight)

12 June He 111 shot down off Margate by 610 Sqn (Wekusta 51)
He111 claimed by 64 Sqn near Gatwick at 0720 (same?)

20/21 June 0100 He111 cliamed by 222 Sqn off Sunk Island
0145 He111 damaged by 222 Sqn Cottingham area
? He111 claimed by 41 Sqn Teesmouth

21 June 2315 He115 rescue aircraft (seeking survivors from above)claimed probable by 616 Sqn

26/27 June: midnight He111 claimed by 72 Sqn near Acklington
0017 He111 claimed off Withernsea by 616 Sqn
0050 He111 claimed off Humber by 222 Sqn
(believe these three from I/KG4)

0100 He111 claimed off Aberdeen by 603 Sqn
0050 He111 claimed by 602 Sqn off Dunbar
(both from I/KG26)

after midnight He111 claimed by 601 Sqn off Brighton
0140-0225 He111 claimed probable by 236 Sqn Blenheim
off Isle of Wight (same aircraft?)

28/29 June: He111 probable over Norfolk by Blenheim of 23 Sqn
He111 probable off Hornsea by 616 Sqn.

29/30 June: Do215 Obdl claimed by 72 Sqn off Holy island.

Any detail with be most useful. Many thanks in advance.
