Dzisiejszego dnia (tj. 22 września 2013) w Newark pod Nottingham w Wielkiej Brytanii odbyły się obchody upamiętniające Warszawski Most Powietrzny. W 1944r walcząca Warszawa oczekiwała pomocy zachodnich aliantów. Jedynym krokiem na jaki zdecydowali się nasi sprzymierzeńcy było zorganizowanie dobrowolnych lotów z zaopatrzeniem. Niestety większość zrzutów nie trafiła w wyznaczone miejsce czyli w ręce powstańców a wiele samolotów zostało zestrzelonych przez niemieckie wojska.

Jak co roku na Polskim Cmentarzu w Newark odbyły się uroczystość ku chwale i pamięci ofiar tego bohaterskiego czynu. Poniżej przedstawiamy fotorelację z wydarzenia.

Northholt Remembering The 2165 Polish Airmen Who Died And Their Sacrifice During The 2nd World War

Polish War Memorial, Northolt

This commemorates the 2165 Polish airmen who lost their lives during the 2nd World War fighting alongside the  Allies. RAF Northolt was the main base for the Polish fighter squadrons. The memorial is by the Western Avenue/West End Road roundabout, outside the airfield.

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

Thousands of Newarkers saw the procession headed by the exiled Polish government and Newark mayor, Councillor Cyril Parlby on 16th July 1943. After his body was exhumed on 13th September 1993, General Sikorski had his Polish flag draped across a fresh coffin and taken to Newark Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene overnight, guarded by members of the RAF Regiment with reversed arms. The next day had a farewell Mass before his return home to  Poland. Mr Roger Parlby also went along on that plane to Poland. 

WARSAW – Poland’s World War II leader-in-exile has been buried again with full military honors, after investigators completed an autopsy to determine if he was murdered. General Władysław Sikorski’s flag-draped coffin was re-interred inside Krakow’s main cathedral, alongside Poland’s ancient kings and other historical figures.

Stowarzyszenie o nazwie Friends of Newark Cemetery powstało w listopadzie 2005 z myślą o niesieniu pomocy służbom odpowiedzialnym za opiekę nad cmentarzem, a także promowaniu go jako jednego z najbardziej urokliwych i ważnych ze względu na wartości historyczne zakątków miasta. Mając to na uwadze, wzięliśmy udział m. in.  w obchodach 150 rocznicy założenia Cmentarza, mających miejsce 7 października 2007, a prowadzonych przez Burmistrza miasta. Friends of Newark Cemetery przygotowują i prowadzą też odbywające się co roku Dni Otwarte cmentarza w the Interpretation Centre (budynek dawnej kaplicy).

Chapel Interpretation Centre, Newark Cemetery

DZIAŁALNOŚĆ

Na przestrzeni kilku ostatnich lat zasadziliśmy ponad 2000 roślin w pobliżu kaplicy, czyściliśmy pomniki i malowaliśmy ławki. Członkowie stowarzyszenia cały czas instalują budki dla ptaków, a także wytyczają obszary porośnięte dziką roślinnością i oprowadzają zorganizowane wycieczki po cmentarzu skupiając się na zagadnieniach zarówno historycznych, jak też przyrodniczych.

Pomagamy w walce z wandalizmem, a także inną, szkodliwą dla cmentarza, działalnością, ponadto we współpracy z Town Council dążymy do rozwiązania tego typu problemów. Jednym z naszych podstawowych celów jest udzielanie pomocy oraz informacji wszystkim odwiedzającym cmentarz oraz the Chapel Interpretation Centre, w związku z czym dążymy do zintensyfikowania dyżurów.

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.

Comfort  Book Of Hope

Jedną z ciekawszych inicjatyw Friends of Newark Cemetery stało się wydanie tzw. Comfort Book – zbioru wierszy, cytatów i ustępów z Pisma Świętego, przygotowanej z myślą o rodzinach zmarłych. W trakcie pracy nad książką poprosiliśmy o pomoc mieszkańców Newark pytając o to, jakie teksty i wiersze chcieliby w niej zobaczyć.
