Commonwealth and Polish War Graves, Newark -on-Trent NG24 1SQ

Many Poles came to England to help with the war effort and many chose to stay after the 2nd world war. We have been welcoming Polish people for over 74 years since 1940 to the Newark area. During the Second World War there were a number of RAF. 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. General Wladyslaw Sikorski, Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Forces and war time Polish Prime Minister. Our remembrance for Poland’s War hero, lest We Forget 4th July 1943 – marked the anniversary of his death.

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.
Each year there are two services annually at the immaculately-kept war graves’ section at Newark Cemetery – of Homage and Remembrance organised by the Polish Air Force Association Charitable Trust and a tribute to the 250 airmen who died during the Airbridge operations of 1944.

A memorial cross to the Polish airmen buried here was erected in the plot and was unveiled in 1941 by President Raczkiewicz, ex-President of the Polish Republic and head of the war time Polish Government in London, supported by General Sikorski, Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Forces and war time Polish Prime Minister. When both men subsequently died, General Sikorski on 4th July 1943 and President Raczkiewicz in 1947, they were buried at the foot of the Polish Memorial. General Sikorski’s remains were returned to Poland on 14th September 1993, after being buried for 50 years at Newark Cemetery. You can still view a memorial to him at Newark.

Two minutes

Two minutes isn’t much to give,

To those who fought and died,

And not forgetting loved ones,

Who Till this day have cried.

To Flanders fields where poppies grow,

Our thoughts return to long ago,

And in remembrance they still live,

Two minutes isn’t much to give

Our beautiful and historic Newark Cemetery, London Road, Newark, Nottinghamshire since 1856. Newark Cemetery at first glance it would not appear to possess anything of particular historical significance. After 9 years  I have found out that is not the case, history comes alive.
