Tadeusz Zemla - Man of mystery
« on: Tuesday 20 October 20 13:56 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have any information on Flight Sergeant Tadeusz Zemla, born 3rd May 1916 in Krakow, Poland and died 16th June 2005 in Chadderton, Lancs.  He is recorded as a pilot with the Polish Air Force in exile (based in England) but I cannot find him in any of their squadrons.  Many thanks

Married 1944 in Middleton to Annie P Walker.  He is shown as Tadeusz J so had a second name.  One child born 1945

Thank you CaroleW.  There was only one man of this name in the Polish Air Force so this is very promising.

Thank you CaroleW,

I think you are right.  His great nephew emailed me a few minutes ago and confirmed the detail that you supplied earlier and said he married again in the 1970s and had more children - bit of a surprise because he would be 56 in 1972!  Sadly he knows very little else about his great uncle.

No children listed to second marriage - just found this on another forum.  Death reg shows birthdate 3.5.1919 - post shows  3.5.1916

Says he changed his name to Edward Jordon??  Only posted recently
