    The crash of the Lancaster was reported in several newspapers at the time. This is the report from the Lancaster Guardian of February 8th 1946:

    POLISH AIRMAN KILLED
    One of the crew of six Polish airmen who were killed when a Lancaster bomber blew up in mid-air over Wigston Magna, Leicestershire, during a freak thunderstorm on Monday, was Warrant-Officer Michal Shzwandt. In June he married Miss Mary hepworth, at Morecambe, where her family now reside.
    Aged 29, Warrant-Officer Shzwandt foight against the German onslaught in Poland, was imprisoned in Lithuania, and escaped to join the Polish Air Force in this country. A bomb-aimer in air operations against the Reich until the cessation of hostilities, he was afterwards employed in flying troops with Italy to England, and in routine duties.
