Do18s 26 September 1939

Hi guys

On 26 September 1939, at about 1130, Skuas from 803 Squadron shot down Do18 K6+YK of 2/KuFlGr506, the crew of four being picked up by an RN destroyer. Apparently another Do18 had been attacked earlier, at about 1100, which landed in Dutch territorial waters with damage sustained in the combat. Can anyone confirm this? A third Do18 was chased away by Skuas, believed unscathed, at 1230.

Any additional details, identities of crews etc, would be appreciated.

Cheers
Brian

Just one additional small piece of info, the Genst.Gen.Qu.6.Abt Luftwaffe QM Loss Lists quote WNr.731 against the Do18 Andrzej makes mention of...
