Re: South African pilots ....experts needed!

Hi

There is a person named Michael Schoeman who is currently busy on a book that covers this specific topic as well. He has no e-mail communication but I see him some times.
What specific info do you require and maybe I can approach him?

Re: South African pilots ....experts needed!

Hiya,

Its to do with P/O F Posener who was KIA on the 20th July 1940. I am trying to locate his DOB, where he went to school and if he has any family still alive?

Any help would be very grateful.

Regards

Danny

Hi Danny,
He was born in 1917.

Contact me at gedburke3@yahoo.co.uk and I will forward what little I have on him.
