The Polish Embassy in London is currently hosting a free exhibition about the many Poles who flew with the RAF and helped defend Britain from the Luftwaffe in the summer and autumn of 1940. With the current Covid-19 restrictions regarding public gatherings , the 20-panel exhibit hangs on the railings of the embassy.
The story of the Polish pilots during the Battle of Britain is remarkably inspiring and is always worth retelling. Their courage, resilience and determination are legendary.
The Polish contingent of airmen was the second largest in Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain. This exhibition ensures more people will be aware of what took place, and that the exploits of the ‘Few’ will never be forgotten.
Winston Churchill said on 20 August, 1940, “Never was so much owed by so many to so few”.
The free exhibition is in place until 31 October 2020. Nearest Tube: Oxford Circus.
