John Davis Smith 96th Bomb Group 339th Bomb Sqdn (d.7th January 1945)

My uncle received training as a B-17 tailgunner at Pyote, TX Army Air Force Base near Amarillo. Based in England, he was assigned to the 339th Bomb Squadron, 96th Bomb Group. One day he was assigned to fly with an unfamiliar crew. On 7th January 1945 they made a bomb run over Cologne, Germany. While returning, their plane ran into another B-17. All died except a pilot and crewman from the other aircraft. I would like to hear from any survivors.
