Mieczysław Gorzula RIP

Mieczysław 'Mike' Gorzula passed away on Tuesday in Canberra, Oz. One of the few, he served with a number of RAF and PAF Sqns, but most of his service he spend with 302 Sqn. He was a one of just four Polish pilots credited with a destruction of Me 262 fighter, the victory being achieved in a dog fight (and not on landing pattern for example). Post war, for a few years he was employed as an instructor in Pakistan.
Rest in peace, Mike!

Hi Franek

Sad news but you mentioned this was imminent. Sadly, many of the WWII veterans are coming to the end of their days.

RIP

Brian
