Just let the Poles have their 303 squadron and all the glory with it, its not much to ask, is it?
They got it all wrong. This generation has not earned any pilot wings yet and all they should do now is to quietly bask in possibility of a future glory on the scale of the squadron 303, one day - but hopefully won not by war, but by other means.
Discussions like this lead to nasty fights here, on youtube and elsewhere - with British-Polish name callings and total anger. Over-glamorizing selected few leads to these sort of things and to trivialization of the real history. It should be reminded from time to time that it was a joint war effort of many allies. We should pay respect to all of them from time to time - including those airmen from Polish Air Force in England.
Here are few numbers to reflect on - 2,165 Polish airmen have been killed during WWII (that's what it says on their war memorial in Northolt), 15 (some say 18) Polish squadrons were serving under RAF command, they suffered heavy losses - Polish bomber squadrons alone lost 929 airmen during 1940-1945, and 17,000-19,400 Poles (depending who is counting) have served in RAF structures during the war.
Some British people, such as Neville Bougourd, lovingly preserve memory of some of those brave airmen. Take a look at his blog, 304squadron.blogspot.com , devoted to squadron 304, and go back to his earliest entries from 2008, where he provides some interesting overviews.
