Lot 14

Outstanding WW2 Polish Fighter Pilots Photograph Album Grouping of Flight Lieutenant Antoni Lipkowski No 316 Polish Fighter Squadron, the photograph album starts with images probably taken in Poland before the outbreak of WW2 with many images of officers in Polish air force uniform. Album soon moves to the UK and has images of Lipkowski in RAF uniform, many group images of both RAF air crew and Polish air crew. Album has images of Lipkowski sitting in his Spitfire with clear squadron badge of 316 Polish Fighter Squadron. Album continues with both single and group shots of aircrew. Album soon moves into the latter years of the war and when he was based in Belgium, with images from the German bombardment of the airfield at St Denijs Westrem (near Ghent). The album ends with images taken post war with his family. Accompanying the album are some wartime ephemera including his Royal Air Force note book, 1945 dated named document regarding his marriage and various correspondence with his daughter. Album contains 155 images and some loose. Very rare to find photograph albums to Polish Fighter pilots. An account of his career in the RAF can be found here, “Antoni Lipkowski was the son of a wealthy family of landlords. He was a very tall, slim, handsome man with straight blond hair. He was a career officer in a cavalry regiment. After the collapse of Poland he found himself in England in the Polish Army in exile. The only possibility then to fight Germans was to join the Royal Air Force. There were Polish fighter squadrons within RAF. He desperately tried to become a fighter pilot, but was several times rejected on the account of his big stature, too big according to the air command, to sit in the confined cockpit of a fighter plane. Eventually he succeeded in being transferred from the Polish Army to Polish Air Force in 1942. He then completed a course of pilotage and an operational training .Antoni had to acquire some technical knowledge about aviation, air combat tactics, meteorology etc. and become a high class pilot capable of air acrobatics and effective shooting at air and ground targets. It is difficult to find exact information, but it seems that he joined the 316 Fighter Squadron early in 1944 , then 302 on April 1st, 1944 and finally 308 Fighter Squadron on October 6th,1944. Antoni joined F.S. 302 as F/O (Flying Officer) and F.S. 308 as F/lt (Flying Lieutenant). F/O corresponds to Polish "porucznik pilot"(lieutenant) and F/lt to "kapitan pilot"(captain). On March 24th,1945 he has been transferred to 84 GSU (Group Support Unit) in Aston Down (England) for rest. On August 8th, 1945 he was incorporated into 317 F.S., part of newly created British Air Force of Occupation, stationing in Ahlborn, Germany. In June of 1946 Antoni has been released from the Air Force”.
