F/O Thomson 411 Sq & W/O Lye 247 Sq

Researching Air War 1940-1945 Holland & Germany I came across 2 crashes for which I look for more info. East of Holland, Haaksbergen: 4th January 1945 F/O K.J. THOMSON 411 Sq RCAF Spitfire Mk IX RK810 Armed recc, 2,15 hrs.PM Combat with Fw 190 PoW. Strange enough Operations Record Book of 411 Sq doesn’t mention him at all being missing on this day. 2nd TAF Logbook on the other hand has his name as ‘missing’ after A/R meeting 7+ FW’s seen Hengelo area. He bailed out and was taken PoW at Buurse/Haaksbergen by the Germans. Has anyone more info and perhaps a photograph of him?
Same question for 31 December 1944 W/O W.H.A. LYE 247 Sq RAF Typhoon 1b PD612. shot down by Flak and crashed in wood Finnenberg near Flaesheim Germany. 2nd TAF Logbook: ”W/O LYE crashed in flames S. of Münster due Flak.” His picture is in a local History Book together with 18 men of Flakabteilung 881 who shot down his a/c. He told them that he was glad as well that he survived. Has anyone more info and perhaps a photograph of him?
