No other history to add re the crash, but our close friend and neighbour Lloyd Leak (Flight Sergeant) is still alive and well after being the only suvivor of this aicraft, then being taken POW. He has recently donated books to the Australian War Memorial in Canberra that he brought back from the POW camp - these were printed in English by their German captors. To this day he cannot remember how he escaped from the aircraft - he regained consciousness after parachuting to the ground. Judy Ford.
