Polish Memorial – 75th Anniversary

Saturday 16th April 2016 will see the 75th anniversary of the two Polish Spitfire pilots killed on that day in 1941.

The hitherto privately maintained memorial – by Colin Clayton – is being replaced by a more substantial structure on Friday morning at 11:00 am, courtesy of EDF and the Polish workers at the power station site.

As it was uncertain as to whether the new memorial would be in place for the anniversary no formal gathering had been planned but it would seem there will be a few visitors to the area on Saturday.

Will post new photos on Friday – subject of course to the weather

One Response to Polish Memorial – 75th Anniversary

  1. I am sorry that I will be unable to attend on the anniversary of the deaths of the two Polish pilots from 303 Sqn. May I suggest you consider having a formal blessing of the Memorial at a later date when it would be possible to secure the attendance of Polish clergy, the Polish Defence Attache, descendants of other members of 303 Sqn, and the duplicate of the Polish Air Force War-Time Standard (the Wilno Standard), held by my Committee at RAF Northolt. Please get in touch and we can start making arrangements.

    Richard Kornicki, CBE DL, Chairman, Polish Air Force Memorial Committee
