      After Poland fell to the enemy, thousands of Polish pilots, soldiers and sailors escaped to England. Dedicated to the liberation of their homeland, some formed 303 Squadron RAF, known as the Kosciuszko Squadron after the elite unit in which many had flown back home. Its exciting and fearless flying exploits made them famous in Britain, where they were “adopted” by the ton and seduced countless women, even as they yearned news from home.

      During the Battle of Britain, which German planes shot down more than any other squad, but in a surprising twist at the end of the war, the Allies rewarded his courage to leave Poland to Joseph Stalin. This movement, fascinating book discovers a forgotten crucial in the Second World War and Polish-story chapter. For the Polish volunteers who were to fly and fight so brilliantly and tenaciously throughout the Battle of Britain, the UK was rightly known as ‘Last Hope Island’.
      Many of them lost their lives, many achieved glory. This book is a tremendous account of its contribution on those hectic days before the RAF began to take the offensive across the Channel. The summer of 1940 and the Battle of Britain – the darkest days during World War II. Britain was left alone, fighting for his life against the mighty German war machine. The famous squadron of Polish fighter pilots whose exceptional ability in the air helped us save during their most desperate hour. They not only played a crucial role in the Battle of Britain in 1940, but also contributed significantly to the Allied war effort.


      The Prime Minister Winston Churchill when talking about the Battle of Britain in 1940, said: “Never was so much owed by so many to so few.” In early 1941 there was a fully fledged Polish Air Force would complement the RAF. With 14 squadrons that was larger than any other in the-in the Air Force occupied Europe who had joined the Allies. More than 17,000 men and women passed through the ranks of the Polish Air Force while parked in the UK. They shot down 745 enemy aircraft, with another 175 unconfirmed. They dropped thousands of bombs and put hundreds of mines, flying 102 486 outlets reaping a total of 290,895 hours of flight operation. They did it at a cost of 1,973 dead and 1,388 wounded. They received 342 British gallantry awards. A matter of honor is the grip, little known history of Polish pilots refugees who joined the RAF and played a vital role in saving Britain from the enemy.

To the polish volunteers who were to fly and fight so brilliantly and tenaciously throughout the battle of Britain, the united kingdom was justifiably known as ‘last hope island’. Many of them lost their lives, many achieved glory. This book is a tremendous account of their contribution in those hectic days before the RAF began to take the offensive across the channel. Summer of 1940 and the battle of Britain — the darkest days during WW11. Great Britain stood alone, fighting for its life against the powerful German war machine. the celebrated squadron of Polish fighter pilots whose superb skill in the air helped save us during its most desperate hours. They not only played a crucial role in the Battle of Britian in 1940, but they also contributed significantly to the allied war effort. The Prime Minister at the time Winston Churchill speaking about the Battle of Britain in 1940 said, “Never was so much owed by so many to so few.” By the beginning of 1941 there was a fully fledged Polish air force operating alongside the RAF. With 14 squadrons it was larger than any other of the Air Force from en-occupied Europe that had joined the allies. over 17,000 men and women passed through the ranks of the Polish Air Force while it was stationed in the UK. They shot down 745 enemy aircraft, with a further 175 unconfirmed. They dropped thousands of bombs and laid hundreds of mines, flying 102,486 sorties notching up a total of 290,895 operation flying hours. They achieved this at a cost of 1,973 killed and 1,388 wounded. They received 342 British gallantry awards. A question of honour is the gripping, little-known story of the refugee Polish pilots who joined the RAF and played an essential role in saving Britain from the enemy, only to be betrayed by the allies after the war. Second world war, the story of millions of young men and women who gave everything for freedom and in the final victory were let down.

      Many links were bonded during Britain’s darkest hour. When Poland was invaded by Germany Polish pilots came to the UK and formed fighter squadrons that would operate during the Battle of Britain. RAF Winthorpe near Newark was established in 1940. It was a satellite station for RAF Swinderby over the border in Lincolnshire. Two Polish air squadrons, 300 and 301, were based at Winthorpe, near Newark, Nottinghamshire.

      Polish President August Zaleski died in 1972 age 88 Buried in Newark Cemetery, Nottinghamshire

      Stanislaw Ostrowski

      Who is buried at Newark was the President of the Polish Government in exile and one of many distinguished Poles who stood shoulder to shoulder with the Allies in the Second world war. Exiled from his native city of Lwow, where he was previously Mayor at the time of the invasion, he came to the UK and worked alongside many polish nationaLs exiled here to keep hopes alive for Poland.He was a medical man who vaLued education. His service to his country included his involvement with Posk – the cultural home in West London for exiled Poles. Historians far more authorative than me can give you the histoiry. Fittingly his burial place is Newark Cemetry alongside fallen comrades who served in the Polish Air Force. 
      Given the annual commemoration on All Souls Day in the cemetry and the importance of remembering all who fought for our freedom today.

      The Polish War Memorial is just outside the borough’s boundaries, but seems important enough to merit an article. This is because it concerns the Royal Armed Forces aerodrome, which takes its name from that part of the north-western corner of the borough, and because many Poles live in Ealing (and have lived for several decades).

      Following the fall of Poland to German and Soviet forces in 1939, many Poles left their homeland to continue the fight from other countries. By the summer of 1940 Britain was facing the axis powers alone, but with the help of men from other European countries. Not the least of these were the Poles. Among the RAF squadrons at Northolt, there were a number of Polish squadrons based there in 1940-1943.

      During the Battle of Britain in the late summer of 1940, the 303rd (Warsaw) squadron saw service at Northolt, flying Hurricane fighter aircraft. They were replaced in October by the 302nd (Poznan) squadron after the Battle of Britain had been won. Others serving from the aerodrome were the 306th, 308th, 305th, 315th and 317th squadron. Some of them returned to the airfield for another tour of duty here. Thirty Polish airmen, a fifth of their number, were killed in the Battle of Britain, and of these, five had been flying from Northolt.

      After the war was over, the Polish armed forces in Britain were disbanded. A group of Polish air force officers decided to form the Polish Air Force Association. One of their first decisions was to erect a memorial for their former comrades. A committee under Air Vice Marshal Izycki started a public appeal for funds (most of which were contributed by British people), and the work soon began.

      The memorial was unveiled on 2 November 1948 by Lord Tedder, RAF Marshal and chief of the air staff. It is made from Portland stone, with bronze lettering and is topped by a bronze Polish air force eagle. The craftsman was Miecystam Lubelski, who had been recently liberated from a labour camp. The names of 1,243 Poles who died in the war were inscribed on the memorial.

      Viscount Portal of Hungerford made a speech before the unveiling. He said that it was a sad blow that many Polish veterans were unable to return home, as their country had been occupied by the Soviet Union. He added that it would be to the mutual advantage of Britons and Poles that the latter were to make their home in Britain.

      In 1991, the first post-war democratically elected Polish president, Lech Walesa, laid a wreath at the memorial. By this time it had been realised that further work was needed. Repair work was necessary, as were extensions in order to accommodate a further 659 names that had not been included hitherto. An appeal was made in 1994 and the memorial was rededicated in 1996 in the presence of the Duke of Gloucester, British and Polish military and civil dignitaries.

      The memorial remains as a monument to the men of the fighter and bomber squadrons and as an expression of Anglo-Polish friendship.

       

      We would like to thank Dr Jonathan Oates, borough archivist and local history librarian, for the use of his information.

4th July 1943: After tours of Gibraltar and festivities, General Sikorski departs for London at 11:00pm. After reaching only 100 feet, the plane began a slow dive into the sea. Only the pilot survived. All others died or were presumed dead on impact at 11:06pm.

 

Generał Władysław Sikorski w połowie 1943 roku obserwował pogarszającą się pozycję swojego rządu a tym samym sprawy polskiej. Musiał także dochodzić do wniosku, że sojusznicy zachodni marginalizują rolę Polski i niekoniecznie staną w obronie jej interesów, gdyż na Związku Radzieckim spoczywał olbrzymi ciężar działań wojennych. Premier opowiadał się podobnie jak inni członkowie rządu za nienaruszalnością polskiej granicy wschodniej i nie był skłonny do ustępstw terytorialnych na rzecz ZSRR. Podejmowane przez niego działania, w tym wyjazd na przełomie 1942/1943 roku do Stanów Zjednoczonych i spotkanie z prezydentem Rooseveltem również nie przyczyniło się do wsparcia rządu polskiego.

 W maju 1943 roku rozpoczęła się podróż inspekcyjna naczelnego wodza generała Władysława Sikorskiego na Bliski Wschód. Jej celem było przede wszystkim wytłumaczenie polityki rządu i uspokojenie wrzenia w korpusie oficerskim, związanego z brakiem zdecydowanego przeciwdziałania polityce ZSRR na forum międzynarodowym. Dokonana inspekcja w ocenie generała i jego otoczenia przyniosła pozytywne rezultaty i załagodziła konflikty wśród kadry oficerskiej.

 W drodze powrotnej premier i naczelny wódz generał Władysław Sikorski w dniu 3 lipca 1943 roku wylądował na lotnisku w Gibraltarze, skąd miał udać się do Wielkiej Brytanii. 4 lipca 1943 roku samolot B – 24 Liberator, którym leciał generał uległ katastrofie. Zginęli wszyscy podróżujący nim pasażerowie i część załogi. Jedyną osobą, która ocalała był pilot. Okoliczności katastrofy budzą wątpliwości do dzisiaj i dają powód do wysuwania różnych hipotez dotyczących śmierci generała.

Zwłoki generała przewieziono na pokładzie polskiego niszczyciela z Gibraltaru do Wielkiej Brytanii. Po kilkudniowych uroczystościach żałobnych pogrzeb generała Władysława Sikorskiego odbył się w dniu 16 VII 1943 roku na cmentarzu polskich lotników wojskowych w Newark.

Sikorski Lying in state

W dniu 17 XI 1993 roku prochy generał sprowadzono do Polski i pochowano je w krypcie św. Leonarda na Wawelu.

Después de que Polonia cayó al enemigo, miles de polacos pilotos, soldados y marineros escaparon a Inglaterra. Dedicado a la liberación de su patria, algunos formaría 303 escuadrón de la RAF, conocido como el Escuadrón de Kosciuszko, después de la unidad de élite en la que muchos habían volado de vuelta a casa. Sus hazañas emocionantes y volar sin miedo los hizo famosos en Gran Bretaña, donde fueron “adoptados” por la alta sociedad y seducidos por un sinnúmero de mujeres, incluso a medida que anhelaban noticias de casa.
Durante la Batalla de Inglaterra, que derribaron más aviones alemanes que cualquier otro escuadrón, pero en un giro sorprendente al final de la guerra, los aliados recompensado su valor al abandonar Polonia a Joseph Stalin. Este movimiento, fascinante libro descubre un capítulo olvidado crucial en la II Guerra Mundial y polaco-historia. Para los voluntarios polacos que iban a volar y combatir de manera tan brillante y tenazmente a lo largo de la Batalla de Gran Bretaña, el Reino Unido era conocida con razón como ‘Last Hope Island’.
Muchos de ellos perdieron la vida, muchos gloria alcanzada. Este libro es una tremenda cuenta de su contribución en esos días agitados antes de la RAF comenzó a tomar la ofensiva a través del Canal. El verano de 1940 y la Batalla de Inglaterra – los días más oscuros durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Gran Bretaña se quedó solo, luchando por su vida contra la poderosa maquinaria de guerra alemana. El escuadrón célebre de los pilotos de combate polacos cuya habilidad excepcional en el aire nos ayudó a ahorrar durante sus horas más desesperadas. Ellos no sólo jugaron un papel crucial en la batalla de Bretaña en 1940, pero también contribuyeron de manera significativa al esfuerzo de guerra aliado.
El presidente del Gobierno en el momento Winston Churchill hablar de la Batalla de Inglaterra en 1940, dijo: “Nunca fue tanto debieron tanto a tan pocos.” A principios de 1941 hubo un pleno derecho de la Fuerza Aérea de Polonia que se complementarían la RAF. Con 14 Escuadrones que era más grande que cualquier otro de la Fuerza Aérea de en-la Europa ocupada que se había unido a los aliados. Más de 17.000 hombres y mujeres pasaron por las filas de la Fuerza Aérea de Polonia mientras estaba estacionado en el Reino Unido. Ellos derribaron 745 aviones enemigos, con otros 175 sin confirmar. Se dejaron caer miles de bombas y pusieron cientos de minas, volando 102.486 salidas cosechando un total de 290.895 horas de vuelo de operación. Lo lograron a un costo de 1.973 muertos y 1.388 heridos. Recibieron 342 premios gallardía británicos. Una cuestión de honor es el agarre, poco conocida historia de los pilotos polacos refugiados que se unieron a la RAF y jugaron un papel esencial en el ahorro de Bretaña del enemigo, sólo para ser traicionado por los aliados después de la guerra. Segunda Guerra Mundial, la historia de millones de hombres y mujeres que lo dieron todo por la libertad y en la victoria final jóvenes nos decepcionó.

Lest We Forget

The United Kingdom, also have over 2,100 Polish War dead, we here in Newark Cemetery have 397 since 1947 and more use Newark as their rest place to the present day. Polish died are also commemorated in 244 different locations. Our lasting tribute, is a time to remember them for their  heroism, bravery, valour and determination for freedom.

The two fighter squadrons went into action

Most of the Polish pilots had hundreds of hours of pre-war flying experience and were among the most experienced in the battle. They had learned from combat experience to fire from close range.

 Let’s remember them by paying our tribute to them and for their contribution during the 2nd World War.

1940 some 8,400 Polish airmen were evacuated to the United Kingdom, which they now called Wyspa Ostatniej Nadziei or “The Island of Last Hope.”

We are paying tribute to the gallant Polish men and women, both civilian and military, who gave their lives in World War II in the cause of freedom.

The views expressed our my own and do not reflect  Newark Town Council.

I have been walking around Newark cemetery since I was first  elected onto Newark Town Council in 2004. In 2005 we set up a group Friends Of Newark Cemetery, I have been Chairman for the last three years. I had an opportunity to have a blog for the last four years and I have had 30,000 visit across the UK, and the World. Many kind words which I really enjoy and appreciate from people that have contacted me. It has intrigues me, something that makes me want to look into who is buried and history going back to 1856, which has been fascinating.

The annual Air Bridge Commemoration

Newark The former Newark Town Mayor Councillor Irene Brown at The service remembers those who died during the Air Bridge Operations when Britain and the Commonwealth

 forces answered a plea for help from the Polish Government in Exile to drop supplies to the Polish secret army which was striking back against the enemy. The service remembers the 250 airmen who lost their lives during the Air Bridge operations, which helped the Warsaw uprising in 1944. — at Newark on Trent.

on Service at Newark Cemetery is to be held on the last  Sunday  September

each year at 2pm parade starting from the Main Gate on London Road, Newark to the Air Bridge Memorial.

The annual Air Bridge Commemoration Service at Newark Cemetery is to be held on 4th Sunday September 27th 2015 at 2pm from the Main Gate on London Road, Newark-on-Trent, Notts 

The service is held in remembrance of the casualties stemming from the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, resulting in the Polish Government in exile in London appealing to Winston Churchill for assistance. Help came when the Allies decided to fly in food and munitions to the Polish Partisans or Home Army, but the help was delivered at enormous cost, hence the commemorations which continue to this day.

After many discussions with the Allied Command and getting no help from Russia, who refused even to grant permission for Allied aircraft to land in Russia, Churchill ordered relief to be flown to Warsaw from Italy.

He was told by General Durrant that an airlift of 2000 miles there and back would have no hope of success, in that the loss of aircraft flying over occupied territory would be tremendous. Although Churchill agreed with him, he nevertheless ordered the operation to proceed. The operation was called “Warsaw Concerto”.

The task was allocated to 205 group, of which RAF

Squadrons 148 and 178, SAAF 31 and 34 squadrons and Polish Special Services Flight 1586 were part. The losses were horrendous: for every ton of supplies delivered and recovered by the Polish insurgents one aircraft was lost (39 four-engine bombers in total).

The Air Bridge Commemoration Service follows the 72nd Battle of Britain Memorial Ceremony to be held on Sunday 9th September 2012 at the War Memorial outside Newark Parish Church at 10.55am, followed by the Battle of Britain Memorial Service inside Church just after 11am.

This annual service commemorates the remarkable victory, and loss of life, by Royal Air Force pilots and aircrew during the Battle of Britain in 1940 and is an occasion to mark the nation’s gratitude for the service and sacrifice of those who took part in this critical phase of World War Two.

The Battle of Britain was the first major campaign to be fought entirely in the skies. When the Battle of Britain was over, 544 Allied pilots and aircrew were dead. The conflict also brought together a truly multinational force comprising 574 British, 139 Poles, 98 New Zealanders, 86 Canadians, 84 Czechoslovakians, 29 Belgians, 21 Australians, 20 South Africans, 13 French, 10 Irish plus others from the USA, Jamaica, Palestine and Southern Rhodesia.

The Air Bridge Monument in Newark remembers the aircrew who died during world war two, supporting the popular uprising in Warsaw of 1944. The uprising badly needed the support of the allies to provide food and munitions to the Polish Partisans, resulting in the Polish

Government in London appealing to Churchill for assistance. After many discussions with the Allied Command and no help from Russia (they refused to grant permission for allied aircraft to land there) Churchill was told that an airlift of 2000 miles there and back would have no hope of success – the loss of aircraft flying over occupied territory would be to large. Although Churchill agreed, he nevertheless ordered the operation to be proceeded. The task was allocated to 205 group, of which RAF Squadrons 148 and 178, SAAF 31 and 34 squadrons and Polish Special Services Flight 1586 were part.

During the Second World War there were a number of R.A.F. stations within a few miles of Newark, from many of which operated squadrons of the Polish Air Force. A special plot was set aside in Newark Cemetery.We must not forget the polish Airman and the Commonwealth they fought for freedom against the enemy and didn’t flinch. They fought to the end and then carried on the fight, we should be grateful. We certainly owe them a great deal of credit that they so rightly deserve.

Many links were bonded during Britain’s darkest hour. When Poland was invaded by Germany Polish pilots came to the UK and formed fighter squadrons that would operate during the Battle of Britain. RAF Winthorpe near Newark was established in 1940. It was a satellite station for RAF Swinderby over the border in Lincolnshire. Two Polish air squadrons, 300 and 301, were based at Winthorpe, near Newark, Nottinghamshire.

Stanislaw Ostrowski

Who is buried at Newark was the President of the Polish Government in exile and one of many distinguished Poles who stood shoulder to shoulder with the Allies in the Second world war. Exiled from his native city of Lwow, where he was previously Mayor at the time of the invasion, he came to the UK and worked alongside many polish nationaLs exiled here to keep hopes alive for Poland.He was a medical man who vaLued education. His service to his country included his involvement with Posk – the cultural home in West London for exiled Poles. Historians far more authorative than me can give you the histoiry. Fittingly his burial place is Newark Cemetry alongside fallen comrades who served in the Polish Air Force.

Najlepiej oceniane - Gen. Sikorski - Naczelny Wódz Polskich Sił Zbrojnych i premier rządu RP na uchodźstwie - zginął 4 lipca 1943 r. w katastrofie lotniczej w Gibraltarze, powracając z inspekcji wojsk na Środkowym Wschodzie. Przyczyn katastrofy samolotu Liberator, należącego do brytyjskich Królewskich Sił Powietrznych, nie wyjaśniono do dziś. Niektórzy badacze uważają, że Sikorski zginął w wyniku spisku; inni uważają, że był to wypadek.

15th July 1941

General Wladyslaw Sikorski visited Newark Cemetery to unveil a Memorial Cross dedicated to Polish servicemen who had died fighting alongside the British.

General Wladyslaw Sikorski remains was exhumed from Newark Cemetery after 50 years on 13th September 1993, and taken to The Parish Church of St. Mary Magdalene, Newark-On-Trent and stayed over night. The next day a farewell Catholic mass before his journey home to Poland.

General Wladyslaw Sikorski 1881-1943

His remains was exhumed from Newark Cemetery after 50 years being buried. On the same day his coffin stayed overnight, at Newark Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene.

On 13-14 September 1993, at

Newark Parish Church,

St Mary Magdalene, Newark On Trent

The next day on 14th September 1993  had a farewell high Mass before leaving Newark for the last time on his way home to Poland.

In 1918, when Poland regained freedom, the crowned White Eagle became once again the Coat of Arms of the Republic of Poland. Before the 2nd world war it had two officially accepted forms – the one from 1919 and the other from 1927 (the latter designed by Professor Zygmunt Kamiñski). Apart from the official designs, several stylistic forms of the White Eagle were in use at that time.

After the defeat in 1939 and during the German and Soviet occupation of the country the White Eagle, as Poland’s coat of arms, was strictly forbidden. Once again it became the symbol of fight for free Poland. It was used by the underground army at home and by the regular Polish army abroad. The left-oriented armed forces, however, as well as the Polish army created in the Soviet Union, adopted the White Eagle without the crown. And such became the official Coat of Arms of Poland after 1945. Removing the crown from above the Eagle’s head meant a change of the State’s political system, from now on based on the principle of “people’s democracy.”

That form of the White Eagle, though officially used till the end of 1989, was not commonly accepted by the Polish nation, so much attached to their previous, centuries-old national emblem.

Over the course of years many copies of various reports coming from the British National Archives passed through my hands. Since several of them are already posted on various sites of the “Polish Squadrons Remembered”, I thought that it might be a good idea to help the visitors to read some of them by gathering them in one place.

For a time being I post several samples of combat reports, evasion reports, parts of unit’s Operational Record Books (ORB) and others. As combat reports usually give only dry facts, evasion reports often tell a story that arouses instant interest. Appendix ‘A’ (censored record) of the latter, recorded the experience of the airman from take-off till such time as his evasion was ‘handled by an organization’. Appendix ‘B’ covers military intelligence picked up by the airman while evading. Appendix ‘C’ is the best of information sources. It deals in detail with the airman’s experience, describing helpers, giving identities and addresses and covering anything of any intelligence interest to the debriefers at either MI-9 or MI-5. Unfortunately, the Brits have very done a good job with their ‘War Secrets Act’ and as a consequence, Appendix ‘C’s are rare and hard to find. Sometimes squadrons employed clerks with a knack for writing, and some might find theirs entries in ORBs an enjoyable read.

During typing, spelling and punctuation of the entries were left deliberately unchanged.

My warmest thanks to Ann Michalski from Germany for typing No. 307 Squadron reports, what save me a lot of spare time, which I never seem to have enough.

The country that suffered most, was Poland, it had a pre-war Jewish population of around 3.2 million, some 2.9 million of whom were annihilated (88%). Of Europe’sJewish children, alive in 1939, only 11 percent survived the war, an estimated one and a half million being murdered. Of all the Nazi occupied countries in WW II, the percentage of Jews saved in Poland was the smallest. The attitude of the vast majority of the Polish population towards Jews was anti-Semitic, particularly in the eastern areas after the Soviet occupation, surpassed only by their vehemently anti-German hatred. Even some members of the Polish police joined the Nazis in rounding up Jews for deportation to the death camps. It must be said however that around 50,000 Jews were saved by Poles who helped hide them at the risk of their own lives. The ‘Council for Aid to Jews’ provided false Aryan documents and gave refuge to many of the persecuted Jews. Unfortunately, many of these ‘aid workers’ along with their entire families, paid with their lives.  As his chosen children were being massacred by themillions he remained silent!. (In all, Poland suffered 4,900,000 dead in World War II about 20 percent of its population)

Daddy’s been gone
Gone for so long
For him I pray 
He joined the Corps
Fighting a war
Somewhere far away

He promised me he’d return
When the Chanukah candles burn
So here I wait
The blessings I recite
By the candle-light
But it’s getting late

CHORUS:
Daddy come home
Stay with me
Let me hold your hand
Let me sit upon your knee
I see fear
In Mommy’s eyes
Every time she cries
And tries to comfort me

It’s scary here at home
My mind begins to roam
Have I lost you?
I hear the phone
Mommy’s mournful moan
It can’t be true!

CHORUS

Where has he gone?
How will I carry on?
Tell me what can I say?
I need to pray…
…Please hear my plea
Send my Daddy home to…

…Who’s that I hear
Calling my name
I run into his arms
Yes, my Daddy came
Home to me
He’s on his knees
Now he’s holding me
For all eternity 

Now, as night falls
We stand tall
Eight candles burning bright
And they’re lighting up the night
Home at last
Eyes aglow
I hug my Daddy tight
And I’m not letting go!

Mr Pete Stevens tends to the Polish war graves in Newark Cemetery. (070813DT2-3)

Mr Pete Stevens tends to the Polish war graves in Newark Cemetery. (070813DT2-3)

Ten Polish war graves in Newark Cemetery have been replaced as part of the work of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.Stonemason Mr Pete Stevens, of Balderton, is one of four members of staff who care for war graves in seven counties, including Nottinghamshire, which make up the commission’s central north region.

The commission tends to the graves, regularly cleans the pale headstones and replaces those where the inscription is beginning to wear away.

It is tasked with maintaining 1.8m graves in seven countries of men from the Commonwealth who gave their lives during the first and second world wars and also those of the soldiers from other nations who fought for the Allied Forces.

Mr Stevens said: “One of the biggest problems we have in the UK is people don’t realise we have war graves here.

“They see them in France and Belgium but they don’t realise we have them here too.

“It is a big thing because it is history we can’t afford to lose.

“I am pleased to see that schools are now taking a big interest in it and are taking trips to France and Belgium to see the graves there.

“It is important. I don’t think we should ever forget the sacrifice made by these men, no matter what nationality they are.”

The Polish and Allied Servicemen’s war graves in Newark Cemetery is the biggest collection of memorials the central north team tend.

Ten of the Polish headstones have been replaced and there are a further 13 headstones in the cemetery due to be replaced, including soldiers from the town who fought in the first world war.

The commission is working to ensure all the headstones of first world war soldiers are in good condition before the 100th anniversary of the conflict next August.

Mr Stevens said: “We have been very busy with the 14-18 Project.

“Our workload has increased probably by 30% and we are looking at replacing in the Central North region about 350 headstones.

“In between that, of course, we are carrying on with the standard work we have.”

It can take up to two years for replacement stones to be provided for graves, and headstones are not removed until the day they are replaced unless they have been damaged or vandalised.

Damaged or vandalised stones are replaced within nine months.

Mr Stevens said damage and vandalism were extremely rare in the entire area.

New stones are commissioned from a factory at Arras in France and old stones are sent away to be crushed.

Mr Stevens said he enjoyed his job.

He said: “It’s not a boring job because we could be here one day then in Nottingham Cemetery the next day and at Sheffield the day after that.

“As well as looking after the larger sites we also go to graveyards where there is just one grave. 

“To put it in perspective, there are 278 sites in Lincolnshire and of those sites 126 have only one grave in them.

“It doesn’t matter whether there’s one or a thousand at a site, they all get the same attention.

“It’s not like a job. It’s a vocation and I suppose something we do out of respect.

“They are all the same and we don’t discriminate between rank, colour or creed.”
