Paul - He was part of the Atkinson crew and arrived on Squadron during August 1943. I will send other details to you via email. It appears that they were on their second Operation with the Squadron when they were lost. Four of the crew F/O Atkinson and Sgts Butcher/Moore/Kirkby survived to become POW. The aircraft crashed at Antdorf and was on OPs to Munchen. It appears they were shot down by a nightfighter
I think this Atkinson is my grandfather. He was shot down and taken as a POW after being pulled from the wrecked Halifax by a farmer who saw it come down.
He was taken to Stalag Luft II and was thankfully OK despite significant the injuries.
Unfortunately he never spoke about the war, bomber command was a taboo after the war due to the nature of their raids. All I know is that I met two surviving crew members at his funeral in 1998 and have found information on his time as a POW via other forums. I also know he made trips back to Germany to meet the farmer who rescued him.
