Rudolf Hallensleben KG76 career.

Hi, im currently working on the operations of KG76 during 1940, and was looking for further information on Rudolf Hallensleben.
I know he was Staffel Kapitan of 2/KG76 at some point, but i have no information as from when / or until he left.

I have Googled! him and found an interesting story on Wikipedia to which i wasnt aware of, and it seems he may have been responsible for the retaliatory bombing attacks on Berlin, the night after!
See below from article.
If anybody has any information on this man or knowledge of his a/c and ops i would be pleased to hear from them.

During a raid on Thames Haven, on 24 August, some German aircraft (one commanded by Rudolf Hallensleben who went on to win the Knights Cross for other actions)[5] strayed over London and dropped bombs in the east and northeast parts of the city, Bethnal Green, Hackney, Islington, Tottenham and Finchley. This prompted the British to mount a retaliatory raid on Berlin the next night with bombs falling in Kreuzberg and Wedding, causing 10 deaths. Hitler was said to be furious
