Post Amiot 143 n°94 shooted down - Flak 1/902

Hello Everyone,

During the Phoney War or "drole de guerre", the Amiot 143M N°94 from Bomber group GB I/34,2nd squadron was shooted down by the Flak during the night on 16 October 1939. This Bomber landed in the wood around Mainz. The 5 crew members were interned.

I got one photo showing this A/C destroyed in the Mainz' wood. On the back of the photo, it is mentioned "1. geutwesseip? - luftgau XIII; Amiot abgeschossen sin 1/902 bei Taubreicht num 18.10.39" I don't speak german. Hence my problem to read this sentence.I will try to scan it.

I guess that the Flak is the 1/902 from the flak zone called XIII. Hence my question:

How we get details (report) on the 1/902 unit to obtain information about this event?
What kind of guns or cannon (20mm, 88mm) this Flak units used to protect the Mainz' area at this time?

Thanking you in anticipation
Best regards
