    PeteS:

    Boiten's book gives the following:

    LM208 Claimed by Oblt Gyory of 5./NJG3

    HK550 Claimed by Oblt Hopf of 8./NJG5

    KB846 Claimed by Hptm Raht of Stab1./NJG2 (According to the book, the aircraft was from 428 Sqn)

    Hope this helps. PM me if you wish any more info

    Pete:
    Being pedantic, the book states that Raht's Claim applied to one of three possible aircraft - KB814 or KB870 of 419 Sqn, or KB846 of 428 Sqn. The loss/claim was timed at
    20:49 hrs....
