Dear AVG Forum members,

Many thanks to the members who have posted many kind comments about our lost Edward J. Leibolt, a Flight Leader with the 1st Squadron "Adam & Eves".  Ed was from Canton, Ohio.

JimBates, marathondon, Trickymicky52, avgbob, worldraft, puailihau, LydiaRossi----Thanks for remembering Ed......MIA, lost on mission 25 Feb 1942.  Later declared KIA.

Just to let you know that, after reviewing our records, I discovered six different threads honoring Ed over the last 6 1/2 years....some with only a few posts.  I have merged them all so that it is much easier for our readers to read the now many posts dedicated to Ed.  This way the other threads are not buried deep in past posts on the Forum.  To those of you who have seen your own threads merged....thank you for understanding how this really helps to bring all memorials to Ed together.

Regarding avgbob's theory regarding the discovery (reported in Whelan's book on the AVG) of the remains of an American pilot some 100 miles from the crash site of a P-40-----perhaps the remains were of Thomas J. Cole (from Clayton, MO) who was lost Jan. 30, 1942 on a mission to Moulmein?

Are there any members who have additional information on this topic?
