Help with correct Polish grammar - "Wojownik Warszawa" or "Warszawa Wojownik"?

Hello,
I hope someone can help me with the following.
My father used to call his brother, who was killed in WWII, the "Warsaw Warrior".

If I was to use this endearment as the name on an airplane, would I write it as "Wojownik Warszawa" or "Warszawa Wojownik".

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

More like "Warszawski wojownik" or "wojownik z Warszawy" - maybe it is somehow related to the Warsaw Uprising?

would I write it as "Wojownik Warszawa"

Should be Wojownik Warszawy but Lookers Warszawski wojownik sounds better.

Rather like "Tygodnik Powszechny" or "Powszechny Tygodnik"!

In fact, the FORMER is the correct one (although the latter could also be right):-)

Hey guys

Thanks for the replies and help.

Looker,
It had nothing to do with the Warsaw uprising. According to what my father told me, my uncle was a trooper in a cavalry brigade who was killed during the German invasion in 1939. Once in a while my dad would also call my uncle the "Chevalier" (Knight)

Again, thanks for the help

It should be bojownik or rycerz. Wojownik, while translating as warrior, purports something like half naked savage with a sword.

rycerz

Just lol.

In this particular case "Warsaw Warrior" would be translated to "Wojownik z Warszawy".

"Wojownik Warszawa" sounds like a name for a sports club.

it just sounds like Captain Planet ("Kapitan Planeta"). stiff and unnaturally if you ask me.
"Warszawski wojownik" or "Warszawski Wojak" would be fine
