Missing French aerial victories in 1944-45

I am looking for details of the following....

26.12.45 Bf109 claimed by SGT Gaston Picois of GC1/7
14.04.45 Bf109 claimed by Lt Roger Prodelle de Latour Dejean of GC2/7
24.04.45 Bf109 claimed by Lt Suisse of GC1/3

They appear in some histories but not in others. I do have an unclaimed "probable" in my database for 26 December 1944 but no name. Is this Picois?

regards

Keith

Re: Missing French aerial victories in 1944-45

26/12/44:sector Pforzheim
Seven Bf.109 shot down by GC 1/7

Capt.Simard=one Bf.109
Capt Rebiere=one Bf.109
LV Koechlin=one Bf.109
S/Lt Leroy=two Bf.109
MP Poncet=one Bf.109

Sgt.Picois=one Bf.109

It seems that it's against II/JG53 (five lost,among these Maj.Meinberg)

Many thanks, Michel.

Seems like JG53 was suffering at French hands. My source has them losing two Bf109G-14 of IV/JG53 to GCII/7 on December 24, 1944.

best regards

Keith
