Seeking info and Photos of Crash of 8./StG2 Ju87B near Maastricht, Netherlands on 11.5.40


I'm seeking photos of a force-landed Ju87B, T6+AS, of 8./St.G2, which force-landed near Maastricht, Netherlands, on May 11, 1940. According to an account by Oblt. Lau from P. 44-46 of John Weal's Osprey book on the Ju87B, the plane ended up "a sorry sight in the middle of the orchard, the fuselage broken in two..." Has anyone ever discovered any photos that show this crash, or which fit the description in the story closely enough that they could be this crash-landing?

Does anyone know the source for Weal's long account of this mission in the book? Obviously Oblt. Lothar Lau, but was that published somewhere else, perhaps a German wartime book, first?
