Claim for Luftwaffe aircraft destroyed over Royston, 16 June 1941

On this date, P/O R P Stevens of 151 Sqn claimed to have shot down a He 111 over Royston at 01.25.

His combat report is very specific and very detailed.

However, there are no losses which match in any way that I can see.

Stevens' aircraft was hit by wreckage and he saw burning debris on the ground.

There was a mid air explosion and his aircraft was thrown upside down and damaged, its oil tank ruptured.

So, something puzzling here.

Is the date incorrect?

If not, what did he hit?
