410718 - Unaccounted airmen - 18-7-1941DaveW i was given a copy of the latest RAFA Airmail magazine and I see that a John Fleming has two letters seeking information published: One asking of a Plt Off Scholfield M.G. had survived the war. Assuming a typo in the surname I take it that this man was/is: Michael George Schofield GAZETTE Gazette Issue 35183 published on the 6 June 1941. Page 17 of 64 GENERAL DUTIES BRANCH. The undermentioned are granted commissions for the duration of hostilities as Pilot Officers on probation: — Leading Aircraftmen 26th Apr. 1941 1105990 Michael George SCHOFIELD (66030). Gazette Issue 35565 published on the 19 May 1942. Page 7 of 48 PLt. Offs. (prob.) confmd. appts. and to be FLg. Offs. (war subs.): — 26th April 1942 M. G. Schofield (66030) ROYAL Am FORCE VOLUNTEER RESERVE. GENERAL DUTIES BRANCH. Flg. Offs. to be Flt. Lts. (war subs.)- — 26th Apr. 1943. M. G. SCHOFIELD (66030). Seems to be the last mention of him. He does not appear to be lsited on the CWGC database so I take it he survived the war. I find a Michael G Schofield born in Q3 1919 in Leeds and following from that, a Michael George Schofield sailed into New York in 1946 on his way to study a course in Harvard University, MA. That man in 1946 was born in 1919 in Leeds. The address given in 1946 is Asket Hill. I cannot find a matching death between 1985 and 2006, so he might still be alive. He also asked about further information on crew of Botha 'L6406', I guess he means L6404. Can't help there but has he gotten the relevent pages of the ORB?
