I am a writer putting together a plot for a possible TV series about a lawyer whose family background on his father's side is Polish. My basic idea is to have his father born in England in 1940 as the son of a Polish airman who cmae to England and was killed in the Battle of Britain. I used to live in Ealing and one day I came accross the small military cemetry in south Ealing Road which was what gave me the idea, not least because it is, sadly, a largely forgotten piece of British history which I felt needed to be be more widely broadcast. Anyone who reads this message and can give me any helpful infromation, fopr example about where I could find out more about Polish airemne who fought in the Battle of Britain and gave gave their live for freedom would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks to those of you who replied to my request for informatin. All of your suggestions were very helpful. Living in Ealing, as i did for many yeras, i was became very conscious of the vibrant Polish community that existed there and made several friends among them.
