Sample text

The Eskadra Mysliwska was the basic unit, similar to a Luftwaffe Staffel or Armée de l’Air Escadrille — larger than an RAF Flight, but smaller than a Squadron. Eskadra numbers related to the parent Pulk, and consisted of three digit numbers, where the first was ‘1’, the second related to the Pulk, and the third to the Eskadra in the Pulk. Thus the first Eskadra Mysliwska of 1 Pulk Lotniczy was No 111; the second Eskadra Mysliwska of 6 Pulk Loniczy was No 162, and so on. Two or three Eskadras formed a Dywizjon (commonly abbreviated to Dyon) — similar to a Luftwaffe Gruppe or Armée de l’Air Groupe, but between an RAF Squadron and Wing in size, although later in the war Polish squadrons with the RAF were to be referred to as Dywizjon in Polish records.

Great assistance was also provided in regard to the Belgians by Guy Destrebeq of Brussels, and in regard to the French by Christian-Jacques Ehrengardt. Brookes, BA, MBA, FRSA, RAF (regarding 85 Squadron), Don Minterne (regarding 73 Squadron), Peter Hall (regarding 91 Squadron), Reg Wyness (regarding 111 Squadron and certain Czech pilots), Ian Piper (regarding 605 Squadron), Nicholas Thomas, Andrew Long, Roy Nesbit, and my friend John Young, Historian of the Battle of Britain Fighter Association, and himself an ex-Spitfire pilot who came close to qualifying for inclusion in Aces High.

The response has been overwhelming, and far from producing a slim addendum, now some four years later a much more substantial Volume II has been produced. Even now, as the new manuscript goes to press, there remain some pilots regarding whom I would dearly have loved to be able to record more details. However, the list of my “mystery men”, as I have termed them, has shrunk very considerably. Some preamble is, as usual, necessary before launching into the body of the book. Sadly, my long time friend and colleague, Clive Williams, was not able to join me in the work for this volume, due to failing health which has greatly constrained his life in recent years.
