"Throughout the years of struggle, in good times and bad, you have stood by us and shared with the Royal Air Force their losses and their victories. 
    The Council would ask you to convey to the officers and other ranks of the Polish Air Force their admiration for their indomitable courage in the air and for their industry and skill on the ground.
    They trust that the comradeship which has grown up between the Air Forces of Poland and Great Britain will prove a lasting bond and that their exploits may have laid the foundations of an enduring peace."

                                                            The Rt. Hon. Lord Vansittart Pc, GCB, GCMG, MVO.
