settling in Ipswich. He died on 11  November 1978.  315 Squadron claims during the war  amounted to 86 confirmed victories,  18 probable, and 26 damaged. ".....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 Chief Marshall. Sir Sholto  Douglas in October 1945 during visit  to Warsaw. 315 Squadron Badge
