    Default Fighter attack on Stirling( Long Shot)

    Gents,

    On the 17/18th May 1942 a Short Stirling Mk.I (s/n N6072 "J") of No.218 Squadron was attacked by a enemy fighter on return from a mining sortie to the "Rosemary" Garden area. The pilot, Sgt Medus and crew survived the encounter and put a claim for one "Damaged" fighter, is there any German reports for this encounter. ?

    TIA
