Polish aircrews who fought alongside Great Britain against Germany during the Second World War are being celebrated in a special new exhibition in Southport.
The Polish Heritage Flight display opened at The Atkinson, on Lord Street, on Saturday, April 15 2023 and runs until Saturday, September 30 2023. Admission is free.
Remember. Inspire. Unity. Pamiętamy. Inspirujemy. Zjednoczeni.
The Polish Heritage Flight was formed on November 11 2019. As part of the Historic Aircraft Collection based at the Imperial War Museum Duxford, the project aims to bring to life the stories of the incredible people who came to the ‘island of last hope’ to take up the fight from Britain against Hitler throughout the Second World War.

Their ethos is to tell the story of all aspects of the Polish Story. The Polish Heritage Flight flies in tribute to not only Fighter Command, but also Bomber Command, Coastal Command and all those that served in all the services and conflicts.
Visitors to The Atkinson can learn a little more about those who once gave themselves for our freedom through objects, stories and images. Sefton Council Heritage & Participation Officer Joanne Chamberlain said: “We are really excited about the opening of our new Polish Heritage Flight exhibition at the Atkinson.”
