Bernard Jennings, Sgt, Stirling Bomber EH898 HA-G

I'm seeking anyone who may have known or served with Sergeant 1332167 Bernard Arthur Wm. Jennings, the son of Rosina (Rose) (nee Lifely) and Arthur Wm. Collinbourn Jennings of Southend-on-Sea. Bernard served with 218 Sqdn., RAF Volunteer Reserve, untill his untimely death on the 26th June 1943, age 22, when during a bombing mission to Gelsenkirchen in Germany, his Stirling Mk.III Bomber EH898 HA-G was shot down by a night fighter over Zieuwent in the Netherlands. He is buried at Lichtenvoorde General Cemetery, Gelderland, Netherlands. Bernard was my cousin, and I wish to learn more about his short life, and hopefully, make contact with any surviving members of his family (Jennings) and/or 218 Sqdn.comrades who remember him from RAF Downham Market, Norfolk.
The Crew of EH898 HA-G:-
P/O 146707 Eric C Hughes (killed)
Sgt 624385 Denis O'Sullivan (Killed)
P/O 391573 A E Boulton RNZAF (POW)

Sgt 1332167 Bernard A W Jennings (Killed)
Sgt 553608 Eric Towe (Killed)
Sgt 1809479 Henry S Pagett (Killed)

Any connections and/or information, however tenuous, would be gratefully received.
Any info. re. Photographs, extracts from letters, documents, copy of 218 Sqn's Operational Record Books (ORBs)would also be greatly appreciated
Thank you!
