Hello Elliven..
Not sure if you have checked but National Archives have couple of records for him ..
HO 405 - Home Office: Aliens Department and successors: Aliens Personal Files, Applications for Naturalisation (ALP and IMP file series) but seems closed until 2052.. but there is a link for FOI request... at
& also
Naturalisation Certificate
Which appears you can order this one..

Also found this one too
But when it comes up you may need to translate page..
Decorations are listed as  ..... VM V class, 2xKW, ML  very impressive
page down to World War II section... for V Class
Cross of Valour  = KW
ML = Medal Lotniczy za Wojne 1939-1945   ... The Air Force Active Service Medal
near the bottom of page..
One last thought you can contact Ministry of Defense for his war records as a relative...

He is a very impressive ancestor and you can be justly proud of him...
What a remarkable life he must have lived...

Hope you find the links useful..
all the best regards,
Mark W

Hello Mark,

Thank you for this information.  I have already written his story but I have had to modify it to show his proper photo - the one in the records had his name but his friend's face! - and to add part of his history which was "officially" his friend's history.  It is truly an  amazing story of a boy growing very quickly into a man.
