Claims over Malta 11 May 1942

Has anyone confirmed who might have shot down the Geschwader Kommodore of JG 53 off Gozo this day? Claims appear confused & Von Maltzahn baled out but was quickly rescued

Re: Claims over Malta 11 May 1942

It would appear that he was a victim of 185, 601 or 603 Sqns that evening. Between 1858 and 1934 hrs, a Do 24 with heavy escort was seen north of the island, presumably there to pick him up. Names I can see are


Flt Lt Booth 109 prob
Flt Lt D. ***as 109 dest
Sqn Ldr John Bisdee (601 Sqn ) 109 prob
Plt Off McKay 109 dam
