I do of course have the details as given in Bill Chorley's 1941 volume on Bomber Command losses: 12 Sqn Wellington W5598 12 Sqn Wellington Z8328 51 Sqn Whitley Z6744 58 Sqn Whitley Z6836 58 Sqn Whitley Z6947 149 Sqn Wellington X9705 214 Sqn Wellington R1784 405 Sqn Wellington W5521 Reason for asking is that I have four Whitleys claimed shot down by German night fighters, which I have not been able to match to actual Bomber Command losses. One of these claims may concern a Wellington loss: Lt. Rudolf Altendorf: 5 2./NJG3 Whitley N. Berlin 00.32 Lt. Ludolf Schmitz: 2 3./NJG1 Whitley 500 m. W. Neuenkirchen, NE Grevenbroich 00.47 Lt.
