".....All I know is that fighting beside the Royal Air Force all through the war has been a gallant band of Polish airmen—the Polish Air Force. The crucible of war has fused those two forces—the Royal Air Force and the Polish Air Force— together. We have been comrades in arms and we shall remain comrades in peace."
                                    Air Chf. Mshl. Sir Sholto Douglas in October 1945 during visit to Warsaw.
