    Default Edwin MALINOWSKI incorrect on RAF POW LIST

    All

    We have the following on RAF Pow List


    MALINOWSKI Edwin E 0 W/O RAF 317 Sqdn 781256 14186

    I can find only 3 MALINOWSKI "Pow's" - well 1 Evader, 1 Interned Sweden and Another "E Malinowski" who was a POW number he has ARMY Number - I think the E Malinowski has been confused wity Edwin MALINOWSKI who was not PoW

    B Malinowski --Bronisław Malinowski
    302 Sqn Raf
    782059
    P-3036 / 782059

    Back in the UK, he rejoined 302 Squadron on 22nd July 1943. Over France on 8th September he destroyed two Me109's but his Spitfire V AA928 was shot down with Malinowski receiving leg injuries.

    He evaded capture and with assistance from the local resistance he was hidden in the morgue of the hospital at Ypres where he underwent surgery for his wounds. The resistance passed him to Spain and on 13th December 1943 he returned to Britain and 302 Squadron.

    Paul

    I think it may come from here:

    https://afheritage-org.translate.goo..._tr_pto=nui,sc

    "...on the 8th of August [1944] F/Sgt Edwin Malinowski of 317 Squadron was shot down and taken prisoner."

    Also: https://www-polishairforce-pl.transl..._tr_pto=nui,sc

    There's a Malinowksi recorded as "missing" in the 317 Sqn ORB for that date, in Spitfire 'M' - no serial listed.
