    Definitely not. This is 1384418 Sgt SR Ashton, shot down 18 July 1944 on ops to Revigny, France with 630 Squadron (Lancaster LM117 LE-J). Held at Stalag Luft 7, Bankau

    Your Ashton is 1121869. Different chap.

    Good afternoon, you are seeking Stanley Robert Ashton and you will find details of him here on the 630 Squadron research website

    630 Squadron link below
    07/1944 (July 1944)

    He will also be listed in the Prisoner/Internee section.

    Wishing you every success

    Please make contact via the 630 Squadron website if you would like any research assisitance

    No. 630 Squadron
     
  12. The names of all Allied POWs that were in Stalag Luft VII are listed in the book "The Long Road" by Oliver Clutton-Brock. This book details when each prisoner arrived at that camp and stories of many of the POWs who were sent there.

    Also, my website (dedicated to my father-in-law Robert Emmett Toomey and RAF airmen) contains photos and information on more than 80 fellow prisoners. See Wartime Diary of Robert E. Toomey
