Szaposznikow - members of the No. 303 Polish Fighter Squadron - one of 16 Polish squadrons in the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the Second World War and highest scoring RAF squadron of the Battle of Britain. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said about them: ‘Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few’. Loved and cherished during the war, betrayed (Yalta Conference ‘45) and treated as a burden and pariahs by the public afterwards*.
