Thank you

Only two of them are airmen from 304 Squadron.  Stanislaw Nowacki, whose body was taken from the sea near Porlock, Somerset and a member of the ground crew who was killed in a cycling accident.  This is odd because most Polish airmen were taken to Newark for burial wherever they died in the UK.  My big task now is to find out exactly where the body was landed (I know it was near Porlock).  I would also like to find the name of the vessel or fishing boat who actually found the body.
