Was Mexico represented? Was Mexico a Commonwealth/Empire force? Or Allied air-forces?
Mexico was invited to send an honour guard for its flag, and did just that. Poland was invited to do the same. Which flag would you have liked the western command to have paraded with? Or do you think that Poland should have been invited to parade two Polish flags? Special treatment for the Poles and if they don't get it, they sulk. How familiar.
[quote=Piorun]Same question for Argentina? which declared war on Germany and Japan when the war was all but over. To be fair, over 750 Argentine volunteers fought in the British, South African and Canadian Air Forces. So according to your statement they should have bee represented by the above mentioned countries.
According to the official programme of the parade, they were represented by those countries. Read and learn that Argentina was not invited.
You see Harry its you that is a liar. How both of those countries be represented in the victory parade and not meeting the criteria of not needing the official invitation? The answer should be simple enough even for you Harry, it's because they were extended the invitation and what you have wrote is just one big lie.
Read the official program and you'll see that only one of those countries was represented, i.e. you're lying yet again.
Either your logic is failing you or You lie which is it?
Either you have no interest in historical fact or your interest in lying is far stronger, which is it?
As I stated before even if such an invitation for 15 pilots was in fact issued, it still equals to nil. It was simply impossible to accept by anyone with shred of self-respect.
Really? The reason the western command Poles didn't accept had nothing to do with the number of invites. How nice of you to describe brave men as having not a shred of self-respect. They wanted to be joined by representatives of the western command navy and army. And when they couldn't get their way, all the Polish toys went out of the pram. A condition which, as we can see in this thread, continues until today.
British army was small but that does not mean incapable of fighting. I assume they were able to do more than iron their pretty army uniforms.
And, as is traditional when speaking to a Pole who says that the British army should have attacked Germany in 1939, where exactly would you like them to have attacked Germany from? I won't hold my breath waiting for your answer: we both know I'll never get one.
Poland had a small but capable navy. How well did they fight? The better boats ran for safety days before the first shots were fired and the rest of the surface fleet went out of port precisely once (and promptly dumped the navy's stock of mines over the side in case the things blew up and hurt somebody). Did the Polish navy have especially pretty uniforms?
