Andrew Mielnik in 1944

Prawie 17 000 lotników przedostało się różnymi drogami do Wielkiej Brytanii po upadku Polski w 1939 roku. Ich ciągłym życzeniem było pomszczenie niemieckiego ataku na ich Ojczyznę i rodziny wszelkimi dostępnymi środkami. Że to zrobili z honorem i niezachwianą odwagą - każdy z nich, od urzędnika do najwyższego rangą dowódcy - jest świadectwem ich przyrzeczenia wobec Polski: Miłość żąda ofiary wyhaftowanym na Sztandarze Lotnictwa Polskiego przez zakonnice w okupowanej Polsce i przemyconym do Wielkiej Brytanii w 1941. Ta baza danych jest wynikiem pracochłonnych badań przeprowadzonych przez Andrew Mielnik w Melbourne, Australia. Teraz (2019) zapewnia tysiące uzupełnień do wielu oryginalnych danych. Uważa się zatem, że przedstawione tutaj informacje są wyczerpującym i dokładnym zestawieniem informacji o personelu, co powinno przynieść korzyści naukowcom na całym świecie. W tej bazie danych zapisujemy kluczowe dane każdego, który służył w PSP w W. Brytanii. Podaj nam dodatkowe informacje za pomocą Help Desk.

Almost 17,000 airmen made their way by various incredible means to reach the shores of Great Britain after the fall of Poland in 1939. Their abiding wish was to avenge the German assault of their homeland and families by every means at their disposal. That they did so with honour and undaunted courage - every one of them, from the office orderly to the highest ranking commander - is testament of their pledge to Poland : Love Demands Sacrifice. This pledge was embroidered on the Polish Air Force banner by nuns in occupied Poland and smuggled to Britain through war-torn Europe in 1941. In this database we record key details of every airman who served in PAF in the UK. Use the Addition button to send additional information via our Help Desk.

We sincerely pay our respects to the beautiful site niebieskaeskadra.pl which has done an outstanding job collating information on members of the Polish Air Force. We acknowledge our debt to them for some of the images in the Archiwum and for their valuable information on many grave locations.

Saluting Krystyna Chciuk The Lively Foundation is very sad that Mrs. Krystyna Maria Chciuk passed away in September. She was a lovely person and a friend to so many. Lively and its Artistic Director, Leslie Friedman know how fortunate we are to have known her. At the age of 15, she was sworn in to the Polish Resistance. It was something of an accident because she was really too young. However, she stayed and became a Laczniczka, a courier. She took guns and messages from one side of Warsaw to another and also led soldiers across the occupied city. She participated in the Warsaw Uprising, 1944, and was captured by the Nazis. She was forced into Prisoner of War camps. In 1945 she was freed from the camps and joined the Polish Army in Exile, in London. She met Mr. Wladyslaw Chciuk, a pilot. He had been a Captain in the Polish Air Force and flew with the RAF in the Polish Squadron. He was a Prisoner of War in Germany, 1943-45. They were married in 1951. In 1952, they came to the US, first living in Milwaukee and then moving to San Francisco. While working full time and caring for her family of three daughters and Mr. Chciuk, she devoted herself to preserving the Polish language and culture in her new home. She was the founder of the Lowiczanie Polish Folk Ensemble, teaching and directing the dances. She also was energetic in support of Polish Scouting and Polish Saturday language schools. As her daughters stated in her obituary, “we shared our mother with all of you more so than many people share a family member.” Pani Krystyna Chciuk contributed to the whole Bay Area through her integrity and kindness. She was always a shining light in our multi-cultural culture. She is greatly missed.
