Dumnie Pamiętane I Nigdy Nie Zapomniane

“Proudly remembered and never forgotten.” For Armistice Day, 2018 – the one hundredth anniversary of the end of WWI – the ‘Band Of Brothers’ mural, which celebrates the contribution of Polish airmen stationed in Northern Ireland to the Battle Of Britain in WWII, was partly covered over with a vertically aligned Polish flag, obscuring fire damage from August(?) seen in the third image. The wreath of poppies is in fact next to the Kitchener mural.
