Loss of 515 Sqn Mosquito NS895 at Deelen airfield, 26-27.4.1944

Dear all,

During the night of 26-27 April 1944, 515 Squadron Mosquito NS895 was hit by Flak and crashed on Deelen airfield. I am looking for additional info on this loss, i.e. which German Flak units were involved in the shooting down of the Mossie and what was the time of the crash?

Cheers and thanks, Theo
