RAF 61st Squadron Daniel Dunkley August 1944

I'd like to ask the RAF especialists for help.
I am looking for photos of an unknwon RAF 61st crew which was shot down on an air raid on Groß-Gerau in 1944 (August 25th/26th). Their target should have been Darmstadt but they failed with the markers and bombed Gross-Gerau and Ruesselsheim.
One of the survivors of one or two crashed planes (I assume bombers) was Flight Sergeant Daniel Dunkley, 1016935.
I need this information for an exhibition on the lynchings of Americans Air men in Groß-Gerau in August 1944.
Thank you very much for your help!

Re: RAF 61st Squadron Daniel Dunkley August 1944

Sorry, I do not have any photos.

The aircraft was Lancaster III PA998 QR-O of 61 Sqn and crashed near Gross Gerau on the night of 25-26.08.44


The crew was

F/L E R Church RCAF Pilot - Died
Sgt D Dunkley RAF Flight Engineer - POW
F/O S A Fleming RCAF Navigator - POW
W/O1 W E Lewis RCAF Bomb Aimer - POW
Sgt T Moffat RAF Wireless Operator - Died
Sgt A J Anderson RCAF Mid Upper Gunner - Died
Sgt F Kohut RCAF Rear Gunner - Died


NB The RAF did not use ordinals st, nd, rd, th in its naming of units- the squadron is No. 61 Squadron RAF. Would not want to be confused with the Army or Americans

Regards

Martin
