Hero died with underground members

JANET Marsden wants to trace the descendants of a Second World War airman, who may have been the son of Jewish Russian émigrés.

George Mamoutoff was the son of Vladimir and Rolly, who lived in St John’s Wood, London.

They also seemed to call themselves Morley.

George was shot down over northern France in 1944 and joined an underground group at Saint-Mards-en-Othe.

He was with this group on June 20, 1944, when it was attacked by 1,000 Germans.

George was killed, together with 26 Maquisards.

He was considered a local hero and interred there with the other victims.

He was later exhumed and re-buried in Choloy War Cemetery in north-eastern France in 1950.


Killed in action

AJEX are seeking the family and details of Capt Henry Maurice Phillips, who served in the Durham Light Infantry in the First World War.

He was wounded in 1916 and died on November 25, 1918. He was buried at Edmonton Federation Cemetery, London.

His wife, Caroline, and son, Sam, lived in Foulden Road, Stoke Newington. The family name may have been Blustin.
