Wilhelm Balthasarīs death

In the Caldwellīs book on JG 26 his death is tied to the Circus 30 which took part before the noon while John Weal in his Osprey book has 15:25 as a time of his crash. This would link Balthasarīs death to the afternoon action, Circus 31. Can anyone verify which one is true?
Also, Lt. Jakob Augustin of 7./JG 2 was shot down with injuries that day and the question is the same, did his crash occurred when fighting Circus 30 or Circus 31?

TIA

Jan

Both losses took place in the afternoon (Circus 31).
