Sgt J.J.Pawsey 928713 Halifax DK170Dear Members, For quite a long time I researching the loss and fate of 76 Sqdn Halifax DK170 lost 11/12 June 1943 over Bladel. I am in touch already with retaives of Pilot Sgt A.J.N.Wilson and reargunner F/Sgt K.W.Lawson and I trying to track down the relatives of W.Op Sgt James J.Pawsey. He is buried at Eindhoven Woensel General Cemetery but have no further info to track his family down. Can ayone help???? Many Thanks, Adrian ....Read More.lancaster on 31st May 2020 08:50:32
Sgt J.J.Pawsey 928713 Halifax DK170Adrian, Hi, This is a difficult one! The following is in the public domain:- [B]James John Pawsey[/B] b. Q1 1921 (MMS Pawsey!) Reg Yarmouth 4b 61 Mid-April 1940 Enlisted 928713 in Block 900000-934899 RAFVR Issued Uxbridge 04-Jan-40 to 30-Apr-40. Aged 19. AIR 78/124/2 Image 250 R3C2. No ‘hits’ in the LG for Name/Number. m. ?? ??? ???? d. 12 Jun 1943 in DK170. Now the Pawsey family seems to have married cousins at some time(s), but I can’t find a marriage for this one! So we must consider that this birth Reg may be ‘non-standard’. It is possible that James J Pawsey may have married an Edna M Hargrave in Q3 1938 (Reg W Glamorgan 11a 2476) – two girls from this marriage Reg in E&W. But whether it is the same J J Pawsey I know not. You could try getting the known Certs from GRO to see if the Informants/Witnesses might be connected, but I think you may have trouble chasing this one any further!
