Avro Lancaster Parachute Stowages - Help please.

Dear all,

I have tried, but did not manage to obtain a precise information on oficial sources (Air Ministry Publications, Avro Lancaster Instructional Course, etc.) about ALL Parachute Stowages for the 7 crew on an Avro Lancaster.

From what I have read and mapped out:

1) The Bomb Aimer did have a parachute stowage (number 29) on AVRO Instructional Course on the wall to the upper;
2-3) Did the pilot and Flight Engineer share the same stowage compartment behind the Captain's seat ??
4) Where was stowed the parachute of the Navigator?
5) Where was stowed the parachute of the Wireles-Operator? On the fuselage (mid-way)?
6) The mid-upper gunner sat on his parachute?

7) The rear-gunner did have a stowage on the side wall of the fuselage, nearby the entrance of his turret. OK this one.

Did the stowage compartment of the Captain allows more than one parachute to be stowed? Could that of the Flight-Engineer be kept alongside?

Does anyone do have a Picture or diagram of the Parachute Stowage for both the Captain and the Flight Engineer on an Avro Lancaster?
