I have read what may have been a combat report in the Douglas Bader book, "Battle for Britain", in which the NZ ace Al Deere had a protracted combat with a with a 109 over France.  Interesting story (don't have the book any more but someone?)  As I recall their Sqn CO I think had been shot down near the coast.  Another pilot flew across in a Magister to pick him up  Deere flew top cover for the pickup and tangled with a 109 trying to break up the good time being had by all!  He states that he was able to constantly out turn the 109 (bearing in mind low down turining radius, could be different at altitude).  As such he said he felt a huge surge of confidence in the knowledge the Spifire was better, and thenknew they were going to win!
