JG 54 losses on 29 December 1943

On this date, the summary of Luftwaffe losses show for 5. and 6./JG 54 (that reported as a "Group" during this time period their losses together, independently of II./JG 54):
_ 3 aircraft destroyed by enemy infantry fire during operations
_ 1 aircraft damaged without enemy action during an operational flight
_ 1 aircraft destroyed and two damaged without enemy action on non-operational flight

Rosipal JG 54 loss list has only one loss this day, Lt Albin Wolf of 6./JG 54, then allready a 100+ victory ace, was wounded when his Fw 190 A-6 WNr 531087 "yellow 4" overturned during an emergency landing. No location or damage percentage is given. According to his Wikipedia page Wolf crash landed on a transfer flight on 29 December 1943 and was severely wounded.

I will be interested to have more details about the JG 54 losses this day.

Thanks in advance

Laurent

Re: JG 54 losses on 29 December 1943

1943-12-29, 6./JG 54, FW 190A-6, 531087, 4 gelbe, Nordnordwestlich Nemirow (Pl.Qu. 8923), Absturz beim Verlegungsflug. Bruch ? %.
Flugzeugführer Olt Wolf, Albin, verletzt

The material losse were obviously reported in January 1944 and therefore GQM loss info is not available.
