The Polish Air Force Memorial Committee is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (no. 1185691) set up by the Polish Air Force Association Charitable Trust to maintain key functions after the Trust was wound up in 2010. The Committee was formed with the explicit agreement of the Commander in Chief of the Polish Air Force and of the Chief of the Air Staff for the Royal Air Force with both of whom we continue to work very closely. The Committee is the continuing and direct formal successor of the Polish Air Force in the west and the organisations that represented it after the war.
The Committee arranges the annual Commemoration of the Polish Air Force at the Northolt Memorial and provides representation at other key events in Britain and Poland. We also run the only Museum in the country wholly dedicated to the Polish Air Force and provide a focal point for enquiries from descendants, scholars, schools and others as well as giving lectures and preserving the memory of the Polish Air Force in the West. In 2019 we created a major new Memorial in Normandy on the 75th anniversary of D-Day to mark the role played by the Polish Air Force in the liberation of France.
