On a recent visit I noticed someone had left tributes at one of the Polish graves

A Polish Soldier.



From: http://polishsquadronsremembered.com/307/307Story.html

In January 1944, No. 307 Squadron was converted to Mosquito XIIs and XIIIs, which were equipped with new airborne radar. The unit started to visit enemy targets in Norway. Before a noticeable success was achieved there, however, squadron suffered a painful loss. On 13 January, very popular mixed Polish-British crew of W/O Szemplinski and F/Sgt Tillman was killed during an operational flight in adverse weather. They took for a patrol in which they had to cooperate with the Royal Navy, were recalled and crashed on a mountainside near Benholne.
