10/5/41 Beaufighter raid Comiso - Ju52s destroyed.

Hi guys

Whilst on the subject of Ju52s lost to ground strafing, I have a note that two were destroyed by Beaufighters during a raid on Comiso (Sicily) on 10 May 1941. Can these losses be confirmed? Apparently a Bf110 was also damaged in this raid.

I also have a note that two Ju52s were possibly shot down by Beaufighters on 24 September 1941 over the Bay of Bombay. Any losses?

Once again any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
Brian

Re: 10/5/41 Beaufighter raid Comiso - Ju52s destroyed.

Quite uncommon a day where people make under-claims,

2 Kgrzbv104 F Comiso Tief,angr, JU52 6773 95
2 Kgrzbv104 F Comiso Tief,angr, JU52 6776 95
III Kgzbv1 F Comiso Tief,angr, JU52 6350 60+

Didn't found any Bf110 for that date nor Ju52 for the 24.sept.

Just to add that at least 3 men of ground staff were killed + 2 wounded one from ZG26...at least Bf110 in the place there were
