166 squadron crew lost 2nd jan 1945 - 03/01/10 05:42 PM

I am a relative of Sgt. William (Billy) Lane, lost 2nd January 1945 on the way to / returning from Nurnburg. Pilot was F/O H Burgoyne GM. All the crew died and some sources report were shot down by AA fire North of Poitiers. I am trying to pinpoint what happened, but also would greatly value any information about the crew/the operation from anyone who remembers anything at all.

Does anyone out there remember them or have any photos of the crew? Any family members out there?
Many thanks,
Jayne.
