    Hi,

    UK
    WASIAK, Antoni Marian - W/O( Sgt Pilot ) - P/784188 - PAF 301 Sqn.
    seems to be really the only casualty of Wellington T 10 - 10 ANS - NA735

    https://www.watfordobserver.co.uk/ne...polish-airman/

    I think he has returned to the RAF so he was member of the RAF at the time.

    For interest - there is an evasion report of him from the war:

    I neglected to add that 1163 Pte Joseph Willoughby BRITTLIFF, also served in the 1st AIF. He was stationed at Rabaul with the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force, 1917-1919.
