Rhodes Air battle

Hi.
On 20/2/44 2 15 sqn Baltimores did a photo recce on Rhodes Harbour and was
attacked by 4 109's, as well as 4 Ju 88's
1 Baltimore a/c with Lt Otto was shot down by a JG VII/27 pilot.
In turn the gunner of Baltimore R FA468 W/O Hammond shot down 1 Ju 88 and 1 Bf 109.
I presume from the same JG.They were seen to take off from Calato A/B
Can anybody tell me the pilot that was lost on this date at this location and
the ID,unit and crew of the Ju 88.
Down here in South Africa we do not have access to the data you lucky fellas have up North.
Thanks
Stefaan

Stefaan:

The losses I have have only 1 JG 27 a/c lost that day, over Germany. Ju 88 losses are all over Germany and Austria.

Of course, data is very incomplete thanks to the missing QMG records.
