Polish Pilots in British Services Have just read the autobiography of Jean Zumbach ('Mr. Brown') who came to UK after the fall of his home country via Romania,the Mediterranean and France. He was flying Hawker Hurricanes, later Spitfires and shot down 13 Germans (plus 5 probable ones) during WW2. Was promoted to Major. He was in service until 1946. Then the Poles were told that UK will no longer keep them in their Country and that the have to return to Poland. This although it was already known these days that they would not get a friendly reception by the new rulers of "freed" Poland. Since Zumbach's Grandfather was coming from Switzerland, he still had the Swiss nationality and therefore had the chance to obtain a Swiss passport. He was given 3 days to leave UK. ---- That's what he wrote.
