Justyna (Dziechciarska) Posiecz-Polkowska

Dywizjonu 303 3a
Gdansk School of Mural

Based on an archive photograph taken at RAF Northolt in West London in 1940, the design uses the blueprints of a Spitfire fighter plane as a background. The aim is to show the pilots of 303 Squadron in an individual context away from the glamour of war heroes. The best example of an unconventional personality is squadron ace, Wing Commander Jan Zumbach (fifth from left), pseudonym Donald Duck, who after the war was a mercenary, smuggler, disco owner in Paris and airborne taxi pilot.
