    Default Claim for nights of 1 to 2 or 2 to 3 October 1943

    Hello/Bonjour,

    I am looking for the Squadron which claimed a Heinkel He-111 or a twin engines around Vierzon, a city right in Centre of France during the very first nights of October 1943 (2 October I think). Squadrons usually active in this area are No.418, No.464, No.487 and No.605 Squadrons. But other night-fighters' Squadrons are not excluded, of course. I thank you beforehand for your assistance.

    Best regards,
    Frederic

    I found nothing close to such a claim between 25 September and 10 October 1943, as I guess this is the correct date, in Foreman's fighter command diaries and Tony Wood's RAF files. Also nothing in October 1944 in Foreman's books.

    Laurent,

    NO similar claims as well on the first two volumes of three volumes of 2nd TAF by Christopher Shores & Chris Thomas, either on 1943 or 1944 years.
    Perhaps 1942 ????

    Sincerely yours,
    Adriano

    Hello Laurent and Adriano

    Oups...I made a mistake in the tittle of my thread! The correct month is indeed october 1943.

    I am assuming that it is a nightfighter as the "Flugzeugunfälle and Verluste bei den Verbaänden" page states "Nachtjägerbechüss (Feindbeobachtet)" for this He-111 belonging to K.G. 4 (11. Staffel). I try to check if this is true and if an allied crew has claimed a twin-engines during that night. Thanks for your checking and your replies.

    Best regards,
    Frederic
