Can anyone help trace four Royal Signals D Day verterans? They survived a crashed landing in a glider on the 6th June at the Chateau de Grangues, near Cabourg. They flew from Harwell at 1.30am in Horsa Glider No. 74 together with my uncle Captain John Max of 6th Airborne. He was killed in the crash. The survivors we are trying to trace are: L/Cpl W.D. Ainsley, Sgmn F.L. Howarth, sgmn F.W. Martin and Cpl A.D.MacDonald. All were taken prisoner and presumably survived the war. Another survivour of the crash was L/Cpl Sydney Ellis of the Royal Army Service Corps. Any information about him would also be much appreciated.
