Notes:

The song is about the Polish 303 Squadron who fought in the Battle of Britain with immense courage, ferocity and skill. They helped defeat the Luftwaffe despite being vastly outnumbered. After the War their deeds were ignored in the Victory parades and Poland was handed to Stalin; [That must’ve been like catching Peter Sutcliffe and then being handed over to Fred West!]. Returning home, they faced imprisonment or a firing squad for refusing to become Communists so many had to flee abroad. Even now no one knows the names of the finest airborne fighting force in history.
