Thanks to you two.

The claim of Bigge is very real.

It would appear that Sgt East was a victim of Lt Waldemar Radener of 4./JG 26

Hi all, this claim was not confirmed, because Ofw Bigge did not see fall of the Spitfire NNoX EN960. W/O Karel Körber (Czech) jumped from damaged plane (enfine fail) in half way between brest and England and release the parachute to high. Probably stunned by a blow to the surface and next drowned. Remembered on panel 134 of Runnymede memorial.
