    G'day Philippe

    Scherf was a Squadron Leader. There is no record of him flying on the 1st of May, 1944. On the 2nd, he was awarded a Bar to the DFC. The same day he came down to the squadron and flew a Day Ranger with Flying Officer Stewart. He later flew to Coltishall with an airmen with the last name of Caine.

    Unfortunately, there were no serial numbers nor radio callsign letters mentioned.

    Cheers...Chris

    F/L Charles Curnow Scherf
    S/L Howard Douglas Cleveland

    Thank you
    Kind regards
