Exclamation B-25 Mitchell II of 320 Sqn crashed in Belgium on February 1945

Hello,

I'm looking after some informations about the crashes of 2 B-25 Mitchells of 320 Sqn crashed on the 09 of February 1945 and 10 of February 1945. Those aircrafts crashed in Belgium (location??).
Serials were:
FR-165 (crashed 09 February 1945) and FW-212 (crashed on 10 February 1945).
Who were the crewmembers and did they survive the crash?
Regards,

Alexander
