Default Night fighters Gerhard and Robert Koch Mar 15 1944

Gerhard Koch has two claims for the night of March 15 1944.

I have been informed there is a German book (I have not been given the title) which elaborates on his claims for that night.

Does anyone know of such a book, have any information on this particular night fighter, or know of an archive where I might acquire details regarding his claims?

I have the claim report for a Robert Koch for that night. I would be interested in any information for him as well.

I could maybe help you if you can mention the units these Koch fellows have been flying in.
I cannot locate the Robert Koch you have mentioned. I can find a Raimund Koch. Also mentioning the ranks of these guys could be helpful.

Hi Jaap,

Uffz. Robert Koch 6./NJG1

Uffz. Gerhard Koch 1./JG301

Gerhard Koch I am told is the one that is mentioned in a German book. From what I understand, he states he shot two aircraft down on the night of 15 March 1944. This goes with the listed claims I found but I am not aware of any available claim reports for him. (I do have the claim reports for Robert Koch.)

In the book Gerhard Koch describes what happened and mentions that the following day he learns the first plane was burnt out at a farm and the second plane crashed at Artolsheim.
