Were 38 Group claims and losses included in Fighter Command Combats and casualties

Hi,

No 38 Wing was transferred from Army Co-operation Command to Fighter Command in June 1943. On the 11 October it was raised to group status as No 38 (Airborne Force) Group. Already on the 15 November 1943 it was transferred to Allied Expeditionary Air Force returning to the ADGB/Fighter Command on the 10 November 1944 and remaining there to June 1945.

Were the 38 Group´s claims against enemy aircraft and losses during operations included in the following files?

AIR 16/962 Combats and casualties, Vol III, 1943 Apr.-1944 July
AIR 24/653 Statistics of Combats and Casualties in ADGB., Fighter Command and 2 TAF; Vol 4, 1944 July - 1945 May

Thanks in advance

Cheers,
Peter

Adding some more info

The reason for my question is that I hope to find a reliable summary of all claims made by 38 Group and I also want to check if claims made in combat reports were approved by Group or Command.

Here are two examples of dates with claims by squadrons of 38 Group.

18th September 1943 the rear gunner of Halifax DG396/QQ, 295 Sqn shot down a Ju 88 over the Bay of Biscay (https://www.raf38group.org/dg396b.htm).

30th March 1945 at 0118 hrs the rear gunner of Stirling 20.F, 196 Sqn claimed a damaged Me 110 Pos 5853N 0844E (Combat report)

Cheers,
Peter
