    Hi Dietz,

    According top Nachtjagd War Diaries they were shot down by Lt Georg K. Fuhrer of 4./NJG3 for his first and only victory. He was later killed in a transit flight on 21/3/44.

    Regards,

    John.

    Hi Dietz,

    Their loss is listed as Sea W Tonder/30 km NW Cruxhaven, 4,600 meters at 03.40. As I am sure you know all the crew are listed on the Runnymede Memorial.

    All the best,

    John.
