Added by Stefan Pietrzak Youngs: Sqd Ldr Edward Wolfe's Combat Report: 'I dived at full throttle slightly in front and below the enemy aircraft and came up on his starboard forward quarter where my gunner, Sgt Ashcroft, opened fire at less than 20yds range. Strikes were observed and the E/A turned sharply towards us. I climbed over him, dived underneath and took up the same position as before. A second burst was fired after which the enemy’s starboard engine and cockpit were seen to be on fire, and he turned on all his navigation lights. At the same time he turned towards me again and I repeated my former manoeuvre, the gunner gave him a third burst. Twice again he took the same evasive action and I repeated my manoeuvre with the gunner giving him a forth and fifth burst. After the fourth burst there were two blinding flashes in his cockpit. After the fifth burst I left the attack as we were nearing cloud tops, and through a rift in the cloud layer watched the E/A crash to the ground where it blew up.'

Schopf went out at 900 feet and broke his neck landing, but survived. Schakat was less fortunate, his chute tangled on the AC, and he was dragged to his death as the AC crashed. Müller intended to jump, but his chute opened before he could evacuate the plane, so he opted to make the force landing himself, and did so, coming down in a field within yards of the farmhouse of Walter Kirkwood. His injuries from the landing caused him to remain in the hospital for five months. Ender and Schakat lie in the German Military Cemetery at Cannock Chase.
