Hello Jerome, Firstly thank you for your quick reply to my message I am impressed i'd thought I might have to wait weeks for a reply. You are correct HR985 was shot down near the village of Gace and the crew buried just outside Lisieux. You have also answered another question I was seeking an answer to, I only emailed the RAF last week for the loss card for HR798, as yet I have not had a reply. So I assume from your message that Uffz Herbert Frass shot down HR798 around Lisieux and Uffz Herbert Treff shot down HR985 which crashed near Gace. The pilot of the Halifax P/O Daniels got out of the plane and survived in his ( later ) report he said one of the "Nightfighters" was hit and also crashed. Would you know anything about that and can you tell me from which Fighter Group they flew from ? I know that is a lot to ask and if you have more information you can email me if you prefer or simply reply here. Again thank you. Kind Regards John Gow Hughes.....
