    I met Mr Pozyczka in 1971 at Stow Lodge Hospital in Stowmarket.The story I was told was that at a reunion event of the Polish airforce,he had fallen and broke his neck,which resulted in paralysis from the neck down.Because of this he required full nursing care.    
    He was a tall man with a big personality,frequently frustrated by his dependance.He could be flirtatious,amusing and sometimes demanding.His wife visited regularly and was generous with "proper cheesecake"and chocolate covered plums.You had to admire the man and the irony of flying all those dangerous missions unscathed.I remember him with fondness.
