40 Squadron 1942- 1944


Hello All,

I have just jointed this forum and I was hoping someone might be able to help.

I am trying to find out any information about my Mothers Brother; He was a navigator on Wellingtons bombers in Italy in 1944. Unfortunately his aircraft never returned from a raid on the night 11th November 1944. His Name was Douglas William Ayers from Coventry in Warwickshire England.

I have his service number and where he is buried but I was hoping I might be able to find out some other information about him as my Mother is now 90 years old and would dearly like to know what really happened.

Many Thanks

Regards

Roger
