    The first Bf109 to come down in England

    Hello Chaps, I hope you can help me to find this.
    On Fighter Command Book, I read about the first Bf109 to come down in England, the book text is this:
    The first Bf109 to come down in England was shot down by Sergeant E.A.Mould of 74 Squadron, who caught Leutnant Hans Böhm of II./JG 51 near Dover. He chased him inland at tree-top height and the German pilot finally crash-landed in a field near Elham. Slightly injured in the crash, Böhm is marched away by British troops.

    Do you know about this event during the Battle of Britain?
    Do you have Bf109 markings?

    Thanks in advance.
    Best Regards.

    E.A.Mould

    What Ho old man,
    I have found this gen on Sgt. Mould in 'Men of the Battle of Britain' by Kenneth Wynn.
    "On July 8th Mould damaged a Bf109 of JG51,which made a forced landing on Bladbean Hill,Elham,Kent,the first German fighter shot down over Great Britain in the war."
    Mould was killed on Jan.20th 1943 as a Flying Officer with 85 Squadron,aged 26.
    Hope this helps
    TTFN
    Howard.
