    Default F/O S. REYMER Polish Air Force

    Hello,

    This Polish Air Force served with 23 Sqn in 1941/1942 and with his Polish crew claimed one JU88 destroyed on 7/8 December 1941. Does anyone know his first name and his service number? As always with Polish names, the spelling could be wrong somewhere.

    Thanks

    Phil

    Hi Phil, maybe him?

    Additional info: Printed version of Polish airmen list, pg. 293 has that he has shot down 1-0-1 enemy aircraft so it may be him as there is no other Polish with this surname and first name starting S.

    Hello,

    The Red Eagles A History of No. 23 Squadron RAF, by Peter Rudd (p.53), mentions the following:

    On 6th December (1941), command of the Squadron was assumed by Wing Commander W. J. Crisham, Wing Commander Leigh having been posted to No.12 Group as OC Night Operations. Gilze's trials continued with a visit from Flying Officer Reymer, a Polish officer, who, having attacked and set on fire one aircraft found that he was unable to confirm its destruction as his vision was obstructed by a second on his port side; his gunner, Flying Officer Bokowiec. did his best to remove the interloper but could only claim it as damaged! P/O Hunt, on his first trip, also added to the airfield's worries by chasing several of its inhabitants and damaging one.

    See:
