    Henk/Tim,

    Here is the full entry for FELUS, in Ksiega/255:

    P-780559 Felus Kazimierz, sierz. pil. - W/O, ur 6 I 1903. Skierowany do 1485 BGS Flight (Eskadra Szkolna Strzelania Powietrznego), 6 VIII 1943 na samolocie Miles "Martinet" nr HP 318 odbywal lot cwiczebny z zadaniem unikania atakow samolotu "Manchester" nr R 5835. Podczas kolejnego uniku obronnego samolot runal na ziemie pod Swinderby i stanal w plomieniach. Pilot poniosol smierc. Pochowany na cmentarzu w Newark, grob nr 318 K.

    The above lacks diacritics/accents, no facility for such.

    Hopefully, one of our Polish friends can translate.

    Col.
