Flt.Lt. Adam Ostrowski No. 317 (Polish) Squadron
The Squadron was formed on 22nd February, 1941, at Acklington as a Polish Hurricane squadron. In June it moved south and began to take part in sweeps and bomber escort missions over France. Converting to Spitfires in October 1941, the squadron joined other Polish squadrons at Northolt in April 1942, but in September was transferred to Northern England. In April 1943, it returned south to fly offensive sweeps over northern France, and later joined Second TAF preparing for the invasion of Europe. After flying ground attack missions in support of the landings, 317 moved to Normandy in August 1944, and by October was based in Belgium. For the rest of the war the squadron flew sweeps over Germany, moving there in April 1945. After a period with the occupation forces, it disbanded on 18th December, 1946.
