    Default 11 August 1940

    Hi guys

    Not sure if this has been discussed previously, but on this date occurred several clashes between mainly Spitfires and Bf109s off Dover and in that general area, which resulted in at least 16 Bf109s being lost; six Spitfires lost in return.

    My records show:
    06:30-08:27 74 Sqn 8+4 damaged
    0932:10:32 64 Sqn 2+1probable
    09:45-10:45 74 Sqn 1+1probable+3 damaged
    1145-12:34 64 Sqn 1+2probables+3 damaged
    12:47-14:30 111 Sqn 1
    13:53-14:45 74 Sqn 4+1 damaged

    I/II and III/JG2 lost eight Bf109s
    3./JG3 lost 2 Bf109s
    7./JG26 lost 1 Bf109
    I/II and III/JG27 lost 4 Bf109s
    5./JG51 lost 1 Bf109

    So, which squadrons battled with which Staffeln? Presumably 74 Sqn scored against JG2 in the morning, and against JG27 in the afternoon?

    Hopefully, sorting this out will keep one or more busy for a while!

    Cheers
    Brian
