    Hello,

    NCO service number for,

    J. ADAMEK (P-2095)
    S.S. BELZA (P-2060)
    M. BELC (P-1901)

    and

    Officer service number for

    Can anyone help?

    Many thanks

    Phil,
    It is not "fireproof". There are some errors. In my area of expertise, some of the Polish female meteorologists who arrived in UK, and became Polish WAAFs had Birth Dates that - at very best - could only have indicated that their "meteorological training" can only have been by passing the "Weather Badge" in the Polish equivalent of the Girl Guides!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish...re-war_history).
    I have yet to track down one of these female Polish Met Assistants to see if it is true!
    It keeps us "off the streets"!!!

    Peter,

    It might be worth your while obtaining the service record of one of your ladies. This website will provide the necessary details http://www.polandinexile.com/addresses.html . Although there is a £30 search fee the response is very quick, and the records I've seen are more comprehensive than those provided by the RAF - maybe I've just been lucky.

    Hello Peter,
    Thanks for the warning. But I was not thinking to use it as my sole and only source. But seems to be very useful to fill the gap.
