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
