    Default Luftwaqffe Claim - Wellington. 'Gardening' Operation 17/18 May 1942

    Greetings,

    Does anyone have any information on Luftwaffe claims as to the ‘Gardening’ operations of the night of 17/18 May 1942 please?

    I am interested in who may have claimed a Wellington, one of two shot down that night off Pellworm, Alte Kirche, Germany. It was X3644 of 115 Squadron.

    Chorley gives the time as at 0138 hours 18th.


    Thanks,
    Digger.

    Thanks Ian,
    Appreciate your answer, though sorry about the heading, a typo in Luftwaffe! That's my excuse.
    Cheers,
