Warsaw Memorial at Newark-On-Trent Cemetery

The Warsaw Uprising (1944) needed the support of the allies to provide food and munitions to the Polish Partisans (AK, Home Army), resulting in the Polish Government in London, appealing to Winston Churchill for assistance. 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, he ordered relief to be flown to Warsaw from Italy, which was some 100 miles less than that from England, but 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 be proceeded with. 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 total). The operation was called “Warsaw Concerto”. Annual Airbridge Memorial Service at Newark Cemetery is held on the the 4th Sunday in September each year starting from the main gate on London Road, Newark 1:45pm to the Memorial. Annual All Souls at Newark Cemetery is held on the 4th Sunday in October each year starting from the main gate on London Road, Newark at 2:45pm

Commonwealth and Polish

We are paying tribute to the gallant  men and women, both civilian and military, who gave their lives during the World War 1914  –  1918 and 1939 – 1945 in the cause of freedom. 

When you receive this, please stop for a moment and if you are so inclined, feel free to say a prayer for our troops in the trouble spots around the world.

During the 2nd World War there were nearly a quarter of a million Polish Armed Forces serving under British command. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission cares for the graves of nearly 4,500 Polish serviceman and women in 35 countries around the world. 

There were a number of Royal Air Force stations within and around Newark from which several Polish squadrons operated. The highest concentration of commemorations can be particularly found in Newark-On-Trent, Nottinghamshire.  Our local cemetery with nearly 400 that died, and are buried in special plot on the east side. You can park for free at the Main Gate parking lot at Newark Cemetery, It is location on London Road – Elm Avenue, Newark, Nottinghamshire NG24 1SQ.

Let’s 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.

Laurence Goff Newark Town Councillor took this photo flying over Newark-On-Trent

A Dakota from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flew three times over Newark Cemetery during the annual Air Bridge Commemoration Service held on Sunday afternoon. The annual Air Bridge Service is held to commemorate the casualties stemming from the 1944 Warsaw Uprising during World War II, 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.

The open-air service used to be organised by the Airbridge Association but has now been taken on by Newark Town Council, as survivors from that era grow fewer.

Some 250 airmen from Britain and the Commonwealth died during the perilous Air Bridge operation. Visitors from Poland and all over the UK attend the service and lay wreaths.

Mayor of Newark were among those who laid a wreath in memory of the airman who lost their lives on the mission.

Newark-on-Trent is important internationally, as it is home to the Commonwealth and Polish War Graves where there are over 400 graves of Polish airmen who died during the second world war

Since the RAF loses still grew, the decision about forming Polish bomber We cannot forget their bravery, heroism and let’s still remember their sacrifice. Seventy years after the Battle of Britain, they gave their lives for our to-day.

SAM_0327

We should remember the many Polish airmen who were flying Spitfires and bomber planes with the Royal Air Force, and Commonwealth pilots, during the Battle of Britain and pay tribute to them for their contribution. During Britain’s darkest hour, Polish pilots came to the UK and formed fighter squadrons that would operate during the Battle of Britain 70 years ago.RAF Winthorpe near Newark was established in 1940. It was a satellite station for RAF Swinderby over the border in Lincolnshire. Two Polish squadrons, 300 and 301, were based at Winthorpe. Polish contribution to the Allied victory in World War 2 (1939-1945) It was the only country to fight in the 2nd world war from the first to the last day of the greatest armed conflict to remember them to this day. The most important issue of the Polish contribution to the defeat of the enemy with determination, valor and perseverance. We must not forget the Polish airmen and those of the Commonwealth. They fought for freedom against the enemy and didn’t flinch.

We certainly owe them a debt of gratitude.

Ransome and Marles former factory workers Remembered with a Permanent Memorial in Newark-On-Trent on 7th March 2011

On Friday, 7th March 1941, the most well known of all raids on Newark-On-Trent Nottinghamshire took place, the Ransome and Marles factory was bombed at 1.40pm. A single German Heinkell 111 bomber, flying so low that those on the ground could see its markings, approached from the south following the railway line. It dropped four high explosive bombs. Two of these landed on the works causing considerably damage, one on the road at the side of the factory and the other on an air raid shelter adjacent to Stanley Street. The plane machined gunned the site before circling, passing over the factory again and dropping another bomb. This did not explode.

The Battle of Britain was not just won by our brave Airmen. Many thanks to the people around Newark that worked at Ransome & Marles Ball Bearings Factory which provided components to all three Armed Forces. They needed parts for our Spitfires, Hurricanes, Lancaster bombers and many other Aircrafts that played such a major part during the 2nd World war. These brave people were a great help to win the war thanks to the employees of R&M Factory that ensured our Aircrafts got the Ball Bearings and parts on time, a personal tribute.

Those who lost their lives during the Second World War, a tribute and Memorial  website to the Fallen,  our courageous heroes that will live on in our memories in years to come.

The battle of Britain was won by the help of  the British Commonwealth from British Royal Air Force, Royal Australian Air Force, Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal New Zealand Air Force and Polish Air Force. You can find many that are buried in Newark Cemetery during the 2nd world war.

At British Commonwealth and Polish War Grave since 2nd World War,  Polish forces around the world. During the end of the Second World War there were nearly a quarter of a million Poles in the Polish Armed Forces serving under British command. Today the Commission cares for the graves of nearly 4,500 Polish servicemen and women in 35 countries around the world. The highest concentration of commemorations can be found in the United Kingdom, where over 2,100 Poles are commemorated from Scotland to Cornwall in 244 different locations. In particular, nearly 400 casualties are commemorated in Newark-upon-Trent. There were a number of RAF stations within a few miles of Newark from which several Polish squadrons operated, and a special plot on the eastern side Newark-upon-Trent Cemetery was set aside for RAF burials.

“Lancaster Autumn”

Late in the second world war, an RAF Lancaster roars low over the Autumn countryside. The Lancaster was one of the very best heavy bombers of the war, able to carry an astonishingly heavy payload of 12,000 lb (5,450 kg) of bombs and incendaries. Fitted, for the most part, with four merlin engines, it was also fast and could reach a height of some 23,500 ft (8,160 m).

“Beaufighter Patrol”

Here we have an RAF Beaufighter of 236 Squadron, setting off in the early morning sunshine on a Channel raiding sortie. Beaufighters were used extensively on anti-shipping duties in almost all the allied theatres during the war. They were well-liked by the crews for their rugged construction and heavy armament – qualities which also inspired a good deal of respect from the enemy.

“Midwinter Sortie”

Two Spitfire mk22s bellow flat out over a group of railway workers, struggling with frozen points in the midwinter snow. The men on the ground aren’t too shocked, the airfield isn’t that far away and they’re used to those ‘bloody fools’ beating them up at every opportunity. The mk22 Spitfire was one of the final developments of this famous aircraft. It first appeared just after the war but it did see some action in the far east against communist forces in China and Malaysia. The aircraft depicted here belonged to No. 613 (City of Manchester) Squadron which operated them for several years at the end of the 1940’s before, of course, they were replaced by the new jet fighters.

I am grateful to artist Paul Shordon for his permission to post his three aircraft, for more info check his website.

We Will Remember Them Our Lasting Tribute at Newark Cemetery War Memorial to the Fallen near the front Gate off London Road

Don’t tell me that you understand, don’t tell me that you know, Don’t tell me that I will survive, how I will surely grow

Don’t tell me this is just a test, that I am truly blessed, That I am chosen for this task, apart from all the rest. Don’t come at me with answers that can only come from me, Don’t tell me how my grief will pass, that I will soon be free. Don’t stand in pious judgment of the bonds I must untie, Don’t tell me how to suffer, don’t tell me how to cry. My life is filled with selfishness, my pain is all I see,But I need you, I need your love, unconditionally. Accept me in my ups and downs, I need someone to share, Just hold my hand and let me cry, and say,”My friend, I really do care.”

 “At the going down of the Sun and in the morning, we shall remember them.”

Newark-On-Trent Cemetery Nottinghamshire, which is located  off London Road. Since it First opened in 1856, with two former Chapels one each side of the main Arch. This website has been set up as a fitting tribute, the views expressed our solely my own.

This memorial website has been put together by Laurence Goff. It has been dedicated to the thousands of people who final resting place is in our beautiful and historic Cemetery for over 150 years.
