Hello, I am the grandson of James Leon Schwartz. I am looking for anybody who may have trained/flown with him.  He is originally from Conshohocken, PA and was trained as a pilot but flew as a co-pilot with the Pysonya that was shot down over Hungry on July 14, 1944.  I have a letter written from the girlfriend of "Marty" who was one of two men killed in the raid from the Pysonya.  The letter details how he died and how much she misses him and I would like to share it with any of his family members. It is also my understanding that the Pysonya was not my grandfather's crew and he was a fill in for a co-pilot for that mission.  Any help locating anybody who knew him would be much appreciated. 

Please feel free to contact me. R_Schwartz@Charlestonlaw.edu or 770.634.685 (one)

Dear Mr. Schwartz:

My name is Edward Eagan Shattuck and my uncle was Lieutenant Edward McFarland Eagan who was the navigator on the Pysonya (I thought it was spelled with a Y). As the story goes, my uncle had completed 50 missions and was on his way home when he decided to go up with the new navigator of the Pysonia to show him the ropes. All I know from there was that they were shot down over Budapest and that my uncle was killed. I am very glad to make contact with you!! Any info would be greatly appreciated. My uncle was from Syracuse, NY, which is where I live.

Would love to learn more about the letter.

Thank you.

Very Respectfully,

Edward Shattuck

Of course, guys, correct is Pysonya. Try to contact also Mr. Fainer, relative of bombardier, who also KIA. I was in contact years ago but lost his address.

Mr. Fainer's relative must be Marty.
