Polish Airman emigrates from England to Pakistan
« on: Friday 10 May 19 23:29 BST (UK) »
Around 1947/48 a group of about 30 Polish Airmen set out on 2 or 3 year contracts to help set up the Pakistan Air Force.  Some settled there permanently, others extended their contracts and some left the country.  One of these men, Ludwik Swierzb, just disappeared from view and left no trace of his activities.  Can anyone please suggest where I might start looking for him.  Many thanks.

for photos of these Polish airmen.
Its a good place to start.

Thank you,

A lot of information on the specific airman I am looking for was actually written or posted by me or the lady I am helping.  I have been in touch with the Pakistan Air Force and several military sites out there but nobody can or will help.  I even had one response to say that the Pakistan Government will always protect their anonymity and will never release information about them

Well reading your posts and the information online, if he died in Pakistan you have a difficult task.
