Re: 238 Squadron pilot in the sea 1940

Nick
It is excellent - many thanks! Beg you pardon but do you have any period photos of Domagala as well? This Squadron seems to be not so well photographed, so anything is precious.
Jon
Any chance for copies of the mentioned letters?
The kills chart is intriguing:
Sgt Jeka......4 110's 2 HE111's 1 JU88.......confirmed.
Józef Jeka is credited with 2-0-0 He 111, 1,5-0-1 Me 110, 1-0-0 Ju 88 and 0-0-1 u/i rejected.
Sgt Domagala... 2 110's 2 109's......Confirmed.
Marian Domagała is credited with 2-0-0 Me 109 and 1-0-0 Me 110.
Missing is Michał Jan Stęborowski with 1-0-0 Me 110.
Best wishes
Franek

Re: 238 Squadron pilot in the sea 1940

Hi again Franek

I am afraid I have no photos of Domagala but I do know my uncle kept in touch with him and the other squadron originals up until his death. We have a video of the last Squadron reunion at Middle Wallop where my uncle spoke. Not sure what year or who from 238 attended but I think it may have been the late eighties or early nineties. Will contact my brother who has the tape and try to find out as it would be interesting to know who was there.

Re: 238 Squadron pilot in the sea 1940

Thanks Nick, that would be interesting. By any chance do you have any photos of 1940 period? As you probably noticed, 238 is quite poorly documented unit, so virtually every photo is precious.
with the best wishes

Franek, my uncle had no photos amongst his papers of 238 during the BOB period unfortunately, and I only have one photo of their time in the Western Desert. As you say there is virtually no pictorial record of this squadron that has surfaced since the war.

Well, for some reason some units suffer from such a lack of photos. I am wondering why, at last camera was not a luxury and there were no strict regulations against taking photos.
Anyway, if you like a wartime shot of Domagała (or any other Pole), drop me your e-mail address via PM.
Oh, for some reason I forgot about two other Poles flying with 238 - Stanisław Duszyński and Władysław Różycki.
