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
https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C11124473
& also
https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C11956360
Naturalisation Certificate
Which appears you can order this one..

Also found this one too
https://listakrzystka.pl/jaworzyn-jozef/
But when it comes up you may need to translate page..
Decorations are listed as  ..... VM V class, 2xKW, ML
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtuti_Militari  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
See https://hmc2.pagesperso-orange.fr/en/ww2/39poland.html
near the bottom of page..
One last thought you can contact Ministry of Defense for his war records as a relative...
https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records

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.
