PAFMC hosts wreath laying

The Polish Air Force Memorial Committee, represented by Trustee Krzysztof de Berg, hosted a recent visit by Deputy Operational Commander of the Polish Armed Forces, Generał Dywizji Pilot (Air Vice Marshal) Dariusz Malinowski, and some of his staff, to lay a wreath at the Polish Air Force Memorial at South Ruislip.

Afterwards the party transferred to RAF Northolt where they were greeted by the Station Commander Gp Capt Toria McPhaden for a tour of the Polish lounge where the Station Commander emphasised the long term positive Polish links with RAF Northolt. They then moved on to Gunnersbury Cemetery to view and place a wreath at the Katyn memorial. The group concluded their morning visit at the Polish Institute and Sikorski Museum where they viewed some of the original Polish

squadron diaries, including 303 Squadron and those of pilot Mirosław Ferić.
