Pilot Officer W J Glowacki. Shot down in France on 24 9 40. He died later the same day. Buried in Guines Community Cemetery by pilots of LG 2.

From the Battle of Britain Historical Society:

"P/O Witold Jozef GLOWACKI VM , 605 Squadron "County of Warwick", Hurricane I P3283 UP*P.
During combat patrol P/O Witold Jozef GLOWACKI and P/O Ian James MUIRHEAD chased a Dornier Do 17Z (Werk. Nr 3317,code F1+GK) from 2./KG 76. They shot down German bomber which crashed near by Cap Griz Nez but when they were returning home without ammo, were surprised by Bf 109s formation from 3./JG 51. P/O Glowacki was shot down by Oblt. Michael SONNER and force landed near by Albermuse (France) and was captured by German soldiers. He was slightly injured but he died the same day in German hospital probably from anafilactic shock after injection against tetanus infection (some sources say that he was executed by German).
P/O Muirhead returned Croydon – he was K.I.A. on 15 October 1940 (Hurricane N2546)"


43 Squadron.
