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 for R.A.F. burials and this is now the war graves plot, where all but ten of the 90 Commonwealth and all of the 397 Polish burials were made. The cemetery also contains 49 scattered burials of the First World War.

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.

    Friday 7th March 1941 bombing, we will remember them.  Their ultimate sacrifice to work in dangerous places, during the  2nd world war will not be in vain. We are very grateful to Newark Town Council and NSK Europe, formerly known as Ransome and Marles, who will finally commemorate the bombing of their factory with a memorial. This memorial will be mounted on top of a wooden box which will have the names of the 41 people who were killed embossed on it, along with a plate describing its purpose. On top will take the form of a large chrome-plated bearing. A public ceremony will be organised for the installation of the memorial at Newark Town Hall on 7th march 2011.

    Newark Cemetery British Commonwealth And Polish War Graves

    General Wladyslaw Sikorski was one of the great Polish heroes, let’s commemorate our wartime links with Poland. After the German invasion of Poland, he became the Prime Minister of a new Polish Government in exile, and also Commander in Chief of the Polish Armed Forces, which fought with the Allies by land, sea and air throughout the Second World War.  He was thus Political, military and resistance leader, during the  2nd world war.The Polish fighting for survival for a free nation and  liberation from the terrible oppression to which they had become subject for too long. It is little wonder then that General Sikorski was so loved and respected by his people, and that they continue to revere and honour his memory to the present day. As British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill said in his tribute to General Sikorski in the House of Commons, ‘he was truly the symbol and embodiment of that spirit which has borne the Polish nation through the centuries.’ General Sikorski was also very active in World politics at that time, attending many political conferences with the allies and was, indeed, one of the Architects of the United Nations. Churchill described his death as ‘a most grievous loss to the cause of the United Nations.’ And so it was as Commander in Chief of the Free Polish Forces that General Sikorski left England on 24th May 1943 onboard an RAF Liberator Aircraft bound for Cairo to visit Polish Troops fighting with the Allies in North Africa. On his return from Cairo, his Liberator aircraft touched down at Gibraltar, just as it had done on the way out to Cairo. General Sikorski was accompanied by his daughter Zofia, who was also Chief of the Polish Womens Auxiliary. The Party also included the Polish military Chief  of Staff, Operations. They arrived at Gibraltar on Saturday 3rd July at 6.37p.m. Their aircraft, the same Liberator, took off from Gibraltar airport at 11pm. the next day, Sunday 4th July 1943 on the final leg of General Sikorski was returning his journey from Cairo to London. The aeroplane crashed seconds after take-off,  just off the eastern end of the runway. General Sikorski, his daughter and all his party perished. General Sikorski’s body lay in State for several days at the Cathedral of St Mary the Crowned on Main Street, until a Polish warship could reach Gibraltar to take it to the UK for burial. On arrival at the Cathedral entrance the street was crowded with Gibraltarian men (their wives, children and parents had been evacuated from Gibraltar during the war) who wanted to show their respect to this courageous Polish hero. The then Bishop of Gibraltar celebrated a requiem mass in the Cathedral before the mortal remains of General Sikorski and his party were transferred to the Polish destroyer ‘Orkan’. General Sikorski was buried in Newark Cemetery in England on 16th July 1943. His grave became a shrine to free Poles throughout the world their view was that the General’s remains should never be returned to Poland while the country was under foreign domination. It was therefore not until the fall of the Berlin Wall and the liberation of Eastern Europe from Soviet domination. On this date Monday 13th September 1993, his remains were disinterred from Newark cemetery and  taken Newark Parish Church of St Mary Magadalene stayed over night the next day had a farewell Catholic Mass. After the service  was flown home to Warsaw to be re-interred in a special crypt in Wawel Cathedral which lies inside the walls of the ancient castle, traditional burial place of Polish Kings.

      “Daddy Come Home”
      The Yeshiva Boys Choir
      Featuring Yaakov Mordechai Gerstner

      Song Composed, Arranged & Produced By Eli Gerstner (EG Productions)
      Lyrics By Yossi Toiv & Eli Gerstner
      Video Directed, Filmed & Edited By Mendy Leonorovitz (On Time Studios)

      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!
