Looking for possible hometown and info if available on Tsgt F.S. Paules, who started out in the RCAF, R/106185, then transferred over to the USAAF, but stayed on detachment. He was with RCAF No. 419 Squadron, flying in Halifax DT731, Aircraft was attacked and shot down by Ju-88's, aircraft crashed near Dessau-Roblau, Germany January 20, 1944. Tsgt F.S. Paules and rest of the crew abandoned the aircraft, was captured and became P.O.W.'s,

Note: One crew member, Navigator W/O Warren Ellwood MacKenzie was killed at Grasse, Germany when the P.O.W. column he was in was strafed by allied fighters.

Also the same on

Lt. Martin H. Albert also started out in the RCAF, J/21787, then transferred to the USAAF 0-886257, and stayed on detachment with RAF No. 101 Squadron on Lancaster DV308, aircraft was attacked by night fighters, with the aircraft exploding in air, killing 4 crew members in the explosion, but throwing out 3 crew members in the explosion which survived, two were captured one evaded.

Any help would be appreciated !

Cheers
George
