Throughout the unit's history many other pilots’ names appear in various sources. However this list does not include those that were not given an opportunity to make a single operational flight in 303. Some stayed there very briefly during the unit's rest period while others simply continued their training. Thus I could not confirm this criterion for the following names:

Balejka Josef, Borkowski Henryk, Celak Stanislaw, Daszuta Czeslaw, Falkowski Rudolf, Hrycak Roman, Horn Zdzislaw, Iwanowski Stanislaw, Janiszewski Edward, Karasinski Wiktor, Karasinski Henryk, Kedzierski Stanislaw, Klawe Wlodzimierz, Kopa Walenty, Kratke Tadeusz, Krzeminski Edmund, Lipiec Kazimierz, Lopuszynski Kazimierz, Lubienski Waclaw, Mackiewicz Anastazy, Machowiak Marcin, Malczewski Ryszard, Marecki Roman, Okroj Jan, Pasek Władyslaw, Przeciszowski Kazimierz, Rodziewicz Alojzy, Slowikowski Stanislaw, Sobolewski Jozef, Stankiewicz Ryszard, Stefankiewicz Henryk, Stembrowicz Konrad, Szczurowski Henryk, Szulc Wiktor, Szyszkowski Witold, Switon Leon, Turzanski Boleslaw, Warchal Jozef, Wardzinski Erazm, Wczelik Antoni, Wierzejski Aleksander and Wyganowski Wladyslaw.

      KIA - Killed in action
      KAS - Killed at active service
      POW - Prisoner of war
      VM - Virtuti Militari (Polish)
      DSO - Distinguished Service Order
      DFC - Distinguished Flying Cross
      DFM - Distinguished Flying Medal

I thank my Polish WW2 aviation buffs and colleagues for helping me out with the photos for this file. Should you have additional information concerning this list, and you'd like to contribute, please contact me by choosing E-mail in the main page.
