Generally poor condition
pilot wears RAF flying kit – the figure next to
him is a Polish Army officer as the PAF did not wear Konfederatka’s (a

Pencil sketches to the margins include caricatures of General de Gaule.
It is unknown if this usual design commission was realized.
We are grateful to Andrew Cormack FSA
Keeper of Medals, Uniforms and Visual Arts, RAF Hendon, for assistance.
