    Default In Reference to Johann Zarembowicz

    Do you have any more info on Johann Zarembowicz? He might be my Great Grand Father. I was under the impression he was a POW on the Isle of Man. My Grandfather was born in London and once he came to Ellis Island the name was changed to Bowis. Having been to the Isle of Man for the TT in 2012 and finding out about a person named Johann Zarembowicz interned there I would like to find out more. My Grandfather never told his children about family history and when my sister inquired about it she was told to leave it alone. Insinuating bad things had been done by family members. Redog

    Thanks for the quick reply. Don't think it's him. Age 22 couldn't be him. My father was born in 1936. May I ask why you posted this info? This is an RAF forum and he was Luftwaffe. Redog USPA D 35507

    He's one of the airmen listed in the Forum's 'Unnaccounted Airmen' Project. The names were originally posted by Henk Welting, who sadly passed away in 2012. Alex Smart has taken over the project, and posts the new names on a regular basis.

    The list includes several Luftwaffe personnel as well as R.A.F. airmen.

    I did try to find if there was any way (either from the UK, or German, ends) to establish which Units (or even Trades) any of those reposing quietly in the Cannock Chase cemetery were from. But it turned out to be 'too difficult'. It was simply to try to discover if there were any German 'Met Air Observers' buried there. It was only to be able to point out to the current uniformed Met personnel that, had they been in the area, they might have "paid respects". Same 'Trade' - different sides in WW2! I might point out that I have been led 'badly astray' by the GAF Met, in social surroundings, on more than one occasion since WW2!!
