RAF and Coastal Command victims - 8 Raumsbootflotille

Does anyone do have the DATES and types claimed by R-Boots of the 8 Raumsbootflotille?

It seems there are some Spitfires, Blenheims or Beaufighters or even Hudsons amongst the claims...

I tried to find more about but got no joy..

You might get something from the German naval ops staff diaries online:

The British Admiralty diaries are also online at Fold3.com but you have to subscribe to get access to them.

I guess that you have to look through RM 70/58 to 62 from Freiburg

good luck

Re: RAF and Coastal Command victims - 8 Raumsbootflotille

Col., I do thank you for the link which I was aware. Sadly there is no specific dates where the R-Boots from the 8 Raumbootflotille shot down enemy machines. Before posting I tried to find out those claims, unsucessfully though. But thank you for reminding me the good link and excellent site.

NICK, my huge appreciation for those links. You are a TI expert and dig out amazing files and DATA.

CARSTEN: Understood...am trying to find them on the links sent by Nick....there are some 58/1, 58/2 Files, etc...

I started trying finding the dates from what I see on the pictures...off course it will be no easy task, crossing with Coastal Command War Losses Books....some of which I do have back home.

Thank you again for both for welcomed help.

A.

Sorry for the last post it should have been catalog.archive.gov for the Admiralty war diaries as I said it is free to view.
