    Many thanks Eddie.

    I have that volume, and missed the entry, must go to Spec Savers.

    I've X9983 shot down by Oblt Werner Streib of I./NJG1 and crashed about 02.15 hrs 3 km S of Helden. (Don't know whether this is confirmed in Drs Boiten's 'Nachtjagd War Diaries').
    Regards,
    Henk.
