Flight Sergeant Geroda ("Gerald") Matsumoto was an English airman of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

He was born in 1923, at Wandsworth, the son of Riyo and Dorothy Matsumoto (née Hudson), later of Harrogate, Yorkshire.

Matsumoto, an air bomber in 207 Squadron, died on 21 March 1945, when his Avro Lancaster (serial PA196) was lost while engaged in an operation to bomb a synthetic-oil plant at Bohlen, Germany.[1]

The seven crew have no known grave and are commemorated by the Runnymede Memorial.
