"The courage and determination of the Polish crews have always been of the highest order, ably sustained by the tireless and skillful work of the ground staff. Our cause was one and the same and our resolution to fight on until the enemy was defeated was never shaken. May this comradeship always survive."
RAF Marshal Sir Arthur Harris, GCB, OBE, AFC.
