In 1939, Tad Wier, then Tadeusz Wierzbowski, left Poland at the time of the German invasion of Poland, his homeland. Having made his way to the UK, Tad joined the Royal Air Force initially training new aircrew and then in 1945 he served with 300 Squadron, an all Polish Bomber Squadron based at RAF Faldingworth in Lincolnshire. In this film Tad shares memories of that time.
This film was commissioned by Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire and is one of several films made that look at the rich aviation heritage of the county through the memories of those who served there.
This version of the film is subtitled in Polish.
