“Somewhere in England . . . the first detachment of the Polish Air Force is already training with enthusiasm to form itself into the first of several squadrons that will soon become part and parcel of the Royal Air Force . . . RAF officers, who have had the task of getting their Polish recruits housed in a RAF station, are full of admiration for their new charges. One officer of great experience said: ‘Those who have arrived so far are a magnificent body of men. All have plenty of actual flying experience and are full of enthusiasm, yet show a quiet determination to get on with their jobs as quickly as possible.’”
