Luftwaffe losses on 27 June 1943

Hello everybody,

In the afternoon on 27 June, RAF attacked a convoy off The Hague shortly after 15:00. During the mission 118 Squadron claimed one destroyed and two damaged Fw 190s (including Flight Lieutenant Acworth (http://surfcity.kund.dalnet.se/commonwealth_acworth.htm ), 402 Squadron claimed one destroyed Bf 109, 416 Squadron claimed one shared destroyed Fw 190 and finally Wing Commander Chadburn claimed a probable Fw 190. The RAF fighters didn't suffer any losses but one Beaufighter of the attacking force was lost.
It seems that they had been in combat with fighters from JG 1 since Feldwebel Erich Kaiser of 1./JG 1 claimed a Beaufighter at 300 meters altitude west of Scheveningen at 15:04. No German losses are known.

Is there anyone who knows if more German units were involved (both Bf 109s and Fw 190s were claimed) and whether the Luftwaffe suffered any losses?

Is there anyone who knows from which unit the Beaufighter was from and a serial?

Best wishes/Håkan

Two fighters of I./JG 1 were damaged by enemy gunfire during the day and four other were damaged without enemy action during operational flights.
