Shot Down in Flames

Top marks for the eagle-eyed Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells over at Mailwatch for noting that the BNP has scored yet another own goal with its European Election campaign poster. Apparently, the pictured spitfire plane is a Polish one! It's hard to make out but there is Polish insignia near the front of the plane.

  • I cannot say how proud I am to have been privileged to help form and lead No. 303 squadron and later to lead such a magnificent fighting force as the Polish Wing. There formed within me in those days an admiration, respect and genuine affection for these really remarkable men which I have never lost. I formed friendship that are as firm as they were those twenty-five years ago and this I find most gratifying. We who were privileged to fly and fight with them will never forget and Britain must never forget how much she owes to the loyalty indomitable spirit and sacrifice of those Polish fliers. They were our staunchest Allies in our darkest days; may they always be remembered as such!
