Ju 88 shot down

Hello,

I have got this question. During the night on 30. September 1943 flew several Ju 88 from 8./KG 6 and Me 410 from V./KG 2 a raid to London.
The british nightfighters shot down two Ju 88 and two Me 410.
I am especially interesting about lost of Ju 88 S-1 Wnr. 140595 code 3E + KS shot down on the return over see.
Which of british nightfighters scored in this night?

Many thanks

Miro

I think the date should be 30.10.1943 believed fell to F/O Thomas with W/O Hamilton in a Mosquito of 85 Sqd 20 miles South of Shoreham Ff Uffz. Georg Stein m, B. Gef Fritz Hinner missing, Bf Ogef Erich Frank missing. The other S-1 crew of Oblt Salck believed shot down by F/O Robb with F/O Bray of 85 Sqd. 22 miles S/E of Rye, both victims claimed as Ju188's.

Dear Brian,

many thanks for your kindly reply. Sorry of my mistake, yes the day was of course 30.Oktober 1943.
It is really great help for me.

Many regards from Germany

Please can you tell me the crew names and crew positions for the second Ju88S-1 (140585) of 8/KG6? Thank you.
