If not the Polish pilots Great Briatin would be partially doomed, as Queen Elizabeth said in 1996 "...If Poland wouldn/t stand by us at that time the candle of freedom would be snuffed out." And immediately after WWII when the Victory parade was held Polish pilots and all Polish soldiers couldn't take part in the parade ecause of Stalin. Quote from "A Question Of Honor"***"as the parade was going by one young polish pilot was standing at the sidewalk, when he turned back to walk away an older woman asked: Why are you crying young man?" I think we could ask for a "Excuse us" from the British gov, couldn't we???.......I'm waiting for your comments on this.
