"At this time we remember with affection and pride the Polish air and ground crew who fought so valiantly throughout the WAR of 1939-45. Their courage and gallantry became legendary. The Royal Air Force was honoured by their presence, inspired by their example and enlivened by their gaiety. We salute a brave band."
                           
                Air Chief Marshal Sir John Grandy GCB, KBE, DSO.
