    Default 21 Sqdn Malta 6 February 1942

    Greetings,

    21 Squadron (Blenheim IV) lost three aircraft (Z7308 Z9822 & Z9725)off Malta in the late afternoon of 6 February 1942. They were 'jumped' by Bf 109's. just off the island of Filfla.
    The Blenheims were returning from an anti-shipping patrol off Libyaa

    Does anyone know the Luftwaffe unit concerned and any other information such as German claims for these aircraft please. could be /JG77?

    Cheers,
    Digger.
