Chadwick's life took a downward trajectory after Czechoslovakia. He joined first the Royal Naval Reserve and later the Royal Air Force but after several incidents, probably caused by his excessive drinking, was sent back to Britain from North Africa in 1942. He divorced his first wife and married again briefly. He worked at a number of jobs, but was diagnosed with tuberculosis and sent by his family to a sanitarium in Oslo, Norway. He married for a third time there and apparently achieved some happiness and stability, but suffered a stroke and died on 23 December 1979. At the time of his death the work of the Czechoslovakian refugee workers was largely forgotten, but the lionization of Nicholas Winton beginning in 1988 brought some recognition to members of the group.
In January 1939, Chadwick journeyed to Czechoslovakia to accompany two refugee children back to Britain where they had been admitted to his school. He met another refugee child, Gerda Mayer, in Prague, interviewed her and her family, and took her along with the other two children. Chadwick's mother sponsored Mayer, putting up the guarantee of 50 pounds which was required for the permission to admit refugee children to Britain. Chadwick described his initial reaction to the situation in Prague: "We got a clear impression of the enormity of the task. We so often saw halls of confused refugees and batches of lost children, mostly Jewish, and we saw only the fringe of it all."
On 15 March 1939, the situation in Czechoslovakia became more dangerous. German troops took control of the whole country. The German crackdown stimulated a large market in forged passports and exit documents in which Chadwick was probably involved. Warriner and many other refugee workers found it prudent to leave the country and in early June 1939, Chadwick saw off a final trainload of 123 children and left Czechoslovakia. With his departure, Beatrice Wellington became head of the British Committee and the evacuation of children continued. All together, until it was shut down with the beginning of World War II on 1 September 1939, the kindertransport escorted 669 children out of Czechoslovakia.
Trevor Chadwick (22 April 1907 – 23 December 1979) was one of the people, mostly British, who oversaw the operation of the Kindertransport to rescue Jewish and other refugee children in Czechoslovakia in 1938–1939 before World War II. Nazi Germany annexed part of Czechoslovakia in 1938 and occupied nearly the whole country in 1939. The children were mostly resettled with families in Great Britain.
Chadwick was born on 22 April 1907. He attended Oxford University where he was the captain of a rugby team and graduated in 1928 with a third in jurisprudence. His family and friends believed he should have done better. He was a troublesome youth and had a fondness for alcohol. After graduation, he joined the Colonial Service and worked in Nigeria for 18 months. He became a Latin teacher at his family's school in Swanage, Dorset and married in 1931. He was regarded as kind and considerate of others, but unruly and unconventional in his personal life. Chadwick was described by the poet Gerda Mayer, one of the Jewish children he sent to Britain, as tall and handsome, casual and self-assured.
