A great idea that Memorial is going to pay a tribute to all those Spitfire squadrons participated in the invasion of Normandy and to the three Polish squadrons and three RAF squadrons who flew from B10 airstrip during the Battle of Normandy. Upmost respect for such a fantastic initiative that future generations will remember them.

Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few. At least there is going to be a real memorial in Plumetot for further generation who may come , pay a tribute, show the respect and remember. Great Idea! Honoured to be part of it!

I am honoured to be a part of this on behalf of my father Flight Sergeant Wladyslaw Mielcarek, he had a long journey from Siberia to finally Britain to fight for his beloved Poland.

In memory and recognition of all Polish Airmen and Soldiers who contributed in making the Invasion a success on 6 June 1944. Thanks to them we live free today.

My father never spoke about the war. His squadron photographs with the black crosses he had inscribed over the heads of his comrades said it all for me. His fellow pilots who gave their lives deserve a fitting memorial.
