After he was shot down, Schloesing was hidden by members of the French Resistance, who nursed him back into a condition that meant he could get back to England, where he was sent to QVH.
Following D-Day, Schloesing decided to return to his squadron and re-join the fight. He was fatally shot down on 26 August 1944, the same day Paris was liberated, over the town of Beauvoir-en-Lyon, Normandy.
Beauvoir erected a tomb in his memory and, in 1984, they named a street after him, with great ceremony. There is also a street named after him in Paris - Rue Du Commandant-Schloesing.
