On September 19th 1944 Lancaster PB 347 was allegedly shot down by Fritz Lau and crashed at Elmpt killing all the crew with the exception of the bomb aimer K J Ayres who was captured four days later in Southern Holland and was then sent to Stalag Luft 1. I was wondering if anyone had come across K J Ayres in their research and knows how he managed to escape the crash. Any help will be greatly appreciated..
