From the latest RAF News there is an article concerning a Polish Pilot who ditched his Spitfire 10km from the French coast in 1943. He was only 26 when he died, but last year his formerly unidentified body was at last identified, and given a proper burial. He was F/O Tadeusz Stabrowski.
RIP.

Also a half-page article concerning 101 year old Mary Ellis a former ATA Pilot during WW2. She recently received a Downing Street Honour. A Red Arrow Hawk facsimile outside. A ceremonial guard to greet them. The RAF Salon Orchestra playing inside.

Within Stamford, Lincs. The people showed their respect as personnel from nearby RAF Wittering paraded through their town.
The Dead got memorials, The living got time.
