Schauenberg’s first tour of duty ended that November and he celebrated flying 32 missions.

He later became a flight instructor at RAF station Bassingbourn from November 1942 to June 1943.

The itch for active duty was still present, so the RAF posted Schauenberg to 49 Squadron at Fiskerton, England, where he flew in four-engine Lancaster bombers.

The aircraft enabled him to fly 22 missions against German targets.
