    Hi, can you tell me how you found that one one Polish Pilot received both a MC and AFC? Is there a list of Polish officers and their awards?

    Oh wow. Looks like i was right. A Polish Air Force "escapers' Military Cross. Well my friends this is most rare.
    The combination of awards he recieved now is unique. He is definitly the only Polish pilot who recieved a MC and AFC.

    In regards to his Polish tunic, it is not uncommon to see PAF tunics without the Poland titles, when i interviewed a Polish pilot from 304 Sqd and another from 303 Sqd they told me that after 1945 many of them took the Poland titles off as a lot of the British population behaved negatively towards Poles, especially in the northern parts of England.

    Glad the contact worked out!
