    Default Sgt. H.W.J. Smith, RAF 812199 - photograph

    I am currently gathering information on Anson N5220 of 500 sqdn, which was shot down near Brielle in the Netherlands, on 11 july 1940.
    In particular I am trying to find out more about the only survivor, wireless operator H.W.J Smith, RAF 812199. He was made a PoW and was held (amongst other camps?) at Stalag Luft L6 Heydekrug (Stalag 357?). Henry Walter John Smith was born 20-11-1920, at Stroud, near Rochester, Kent. He died in Hull, in february 1994.
    What would be very welcome is a photograph of Henry Smith. Such a photograph could make it possible to link him to another photograph, I have been researching recently. Any additional information on H.W.J. Smith is, of course, also welcome.

    There is a photo of him on Ancestry. I may be able to download it if you PM me an email address to send it to.
