Assuming that these Operations Record Books survive, you can download them free from the National Archives at the moment: https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/...tal-downloads/

Re: Hurricane losses vs japanese claims

If you already have Chris Shores' Air War for Burma (Grubstreet Publishing 2005) I would recommend Hiroshi Ichimura's book Ki-43 'Oscar' Aces of World War 2 (Osprey 2009) which has claims and Japanese losses of the 64th Sentai in some detail.
