6/KG2 Dornier crash 31st July 1942 atr Cheveley in Cambridgeshire

Hi all,
I am researching this Dornier crash for my forthcoming publication, so far have got some superb eye-witness accounts, and several artefacts...what I am now in need of are some photographs of the crash does anyone know of any pics still in existence, local people took some illegal ones but these are sadly all lost now, Ive tried all usual sources such as local records and luck tho` The aircraft had been to Birmingham and was returning when hit by flak, crashing through a wall and some trees (which still bear the scars). I would also be very keen to see any pre-crash pics of U5+FP at Eindhoven or her crew. If anyone can help I can be contacted on This is the quickest contact route as I only check all forums about twice a week.
Thanks in anticipation of assistance
Cheers all Julian
