  • 104 lata temu urodził się Generał Stanisław Skalski. Bohater II Wojny Światowej. As Myśliwski. Gnębiony i więziony przez władze komunistyczne po powrocie z Anglii do Polski. „Byłem tylko żołnierzem. Latałem i walczyłem najlepiej, jak umiem. Przeżyłem”.

  • With Hurricane Movie hitting the theatres, it is only right to have another look at the two stars of the movie: the Hawker #Hurricane and No. 303 Squadron. 
Although the Supermarine #Spitfire is better known, the Hurricane was the main #RAF fighter #aircraft of 1940. The Hurricane came into service a few months earlier and was also easier to produce. Indeed, the Hurricane was a more basic aircraft design compared to the Spitfire: the steel tubed fuselage and, initially, the wings were still covered with fabric, much like aircraft from the First World War. 
And yet, when the Hurricane came into service in early 1938, it was arguably the best fighter aircraft in the world. Especially its 8-gun armament was unrivalled at that time. In comparison to the later Spitfire, which was aerodynamically more refined, the Hurricane was more reliable and easier to fly.

Faced with a victorious #German air force, the smaller Royal Air Force needed all the help it could get. #Polish and other European pilots, who had fled Nazi occupation, joined the RAF and its fight against the Luftwaffe. 
The #Poles were keen to fight but the RAF would not at first let them fly operationally. This was because few of the exiles spoke English and there was concern about their morale. Yet, they soon proved to be experienced and aggressive #pilots. 
The most successful squadron was No. 303 Squadron, shooting down 126 German machines in only 42 days. 
Come and explore the #BattleofBritain story at the RAF Museum London. We are open from 10am. Admission is free

  • Today we would like to celebrate an outstanding #Polish #pilot from the Battle of Britain, Antoni Głowacki, who became an #ace on 24 August 1940. The RAF Museum’s #archive has his #logbook which reveals in full the details of his valorous service.

Having escaped his native #Poland after the Nazi invasion, Głowacki joined the #RAF in early 1940. In August 1940, he joined 501 Squadron, flying Hawker #Hurricanes. As can be seen in his log book entry for 15 August 1940, he claimed a Ju 87 destroyed and a Do 17 damaged.

24 August 1940 was a busy day for Głowacki as he was scrambled several times. He shot down three Bf 109s and two Ju 88s to become the first ace-in-a-day of the #BattleofBritain. He was later awarded the DFC (Distinguished Flying Cross) and DFM (Distinguished Flying Medal) and remained a combat pilot in the RAF after the war.

The RAF Museum has always been proud to commemorate and celebrate the enormous contribution of Polish #airmen and ground crew during the Second World War. We will never cease to do so.

  • Today starts the #BoBPoles campaign, commemorating the contribution of Polish airmen to the Battle of Britain! Follow #BoBPoles #BoB75 on social media to learn more about #Poles in the #BattleofBritain. Please repost the post 🇵🇱🇬🇧✌️ 20th June is the 75th anniversary of the evacuation of #Polish #airmen from #France to #Britain. On this day, the first of a series of facts about Poles in the Battle of Britain. New facts, accompanied by unique archive photos, will appear on Twitter feed every morning, and on Facebook page every Saturday evening, until the anniversary of the Battle's conclusion on 31st October. 
Based on a broad chronology of the battle, the campaign will be a creative account of the #history of Poles in the Royal Air Force - their significance, successes, and the challenges they faced - though the campaign will begin with the history of Polish #pilots in the early days of the war, and describe their journey from #Poland to Great Britain via Romania and France. A new topic will be introduced each week, ranging from the stories of individual pilots, to more general facts about their role in the Battle of Britain, altogether forming a comprehensive picture of the Polish contingent in this crucial event of #WW2.
