    Hi,

    The Group Captain in the photo after being decorated with the C.B.E., is Plk Pilot P1018 Robert Beill Virtuti Militari (Silver Cross), Cross of Valour with 3 Bars a very highly decorated officer who apart from receiving the C.B.E. from the British also received the D.F.C.

    After the War he joined the R.A.F. as a Flight Lieutenant (serial Nr:500006) on short service (5 years on the active list and another 4 years on the reserve list).

    Mariusz

    One problem W/Cdr Teofil Pozyczka was only awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (Award dated 1942), whilst W/Cdr Robert Beill was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (Award dated 1943) and the C.B.E. (Award dated 1946).

    The above information is straight from Records of British Awards awarded to members of the Polish Armed Forces during WW2.

    I have seen web sites that picture W/Cdr Beill, but place Pozycka name below.

    Mariusz,

    I forgot to say that Teofil Pozyczka also received the D.S.O., this can be confirmed by looking at the London Gazette.
