ANTONI PARADOWSKI
« on: Tuesday 07 July 20 12:09 BST (UK) »
This is a former Polish airman and what I know about him:

Antoni Paradowski
Service No 784203.
Born on 4th June 1919
At Kostograj, Płock, Poland
Died on 30th August 2011
At Toronto, Ontario, Canada
British rank: Warrant Officer
Polish rank: St. sierżant
Trade: Air Gunner
Served with 304 Squadron
Medals awarded 2 x Krzyz Walecznych (Cross of Valour), 3 x Medal Lotniczy

I would like to add him to my tribute site for the men of 304 Squadron and I am trying to trace his family for their help.  This should not be too difficult as I know he died in Toronto only 9 years ago.  Can anybody help please?

Thank you for this information.  He was a very brave man and might still have family in the area so I will keep looking

Thankyou for your contributions.  If I can make contact with a member of his family, I can make tremendous progress with placing him on my memorial site.
