Blenheims VVKJ over Hungary 7 IV 41?

There were VVKJ attacks made on 2 Hungarian town/airfield near Seged and Pecuj on 7 IV. It was done by Blenheim of 68.(6-8 Blenheims), 69. (6 Blenheims) Grupa of 8 Puk. There are some strange data about this operation.
Amount of despached planes are presenting as following 12, 13, 14 Belenheim I ? Most probably 14, but could be 12?and Even 13?
Losses are about 8-10 Blenheim but could be even 12.

Of them 6 were shot down over Hungary (5 over Seged, 1-2 more over Pecuj, maybe 2). The rest losses were done during return flight (due to damage done over Hungary or by own A/A). So the next lost 2-4 planes, (maybe more)
5 victories over Blenheims were claimed by 5./JG 54
There were 18 crews KIA
On own airfield returned 1-2 Blenheim the rest was shot down or force landed somewhere but not returned to the unit.
I wonder if someone have any details about this action (amount of plane 12, or 13, or 14) and real losses
